Backpacking in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Photo Essay

Last autumn I undertook a 2 night hike beside Loch Lomond and over Ben Lomond in stormy weather (see post for October 21, 2008). Backpacking Light.com has just published a photo essay on this trip with sixteen images, all with extended captions telling the story of the walk. The photo essay is available to non subscribers to Backpacking Light and can be found here. All the images bar one were taken with the Sigma DP1 compact camera, which I reviewed on Backpacking Light.

Photo info: Rainbow over Loch Lomond. Canon EOS 450D, Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS@30mm, 1/160@F5.6, ISO 200, raw file converted to JPEG in Lightroom 2.


  1. Just read the story on BPL and a great set of photos. Like the view from the high camp. That dawn looking to Loch Lomond must have been a fine view.

  2. Thanks Martin. Yes, the camp was wonderful. One of those chosen because of the weather that turned out to be in a great situation.
