April Squares: Ben Lomond

Today’s “top of the world” shot is another from 2005, this time taken on the summit of Ben Lomond. Looking at it, you would think it was summer. However, it was taken in March, just two weekends after yesterday’s post where I am wrapped up warmly against the wind.

You might also think that John has caught me in a moment of quiet solitude. However, here’s the same scene from a different angle (deliberately not squared):

It was very busy! Linked to Becky’s #SquareTops challenge.

    Perspective makes such a difference in life, even in photos!

    It’s all about perspective. I love that first shot; the views are so beautiful and you look very contemplative. Contemplating shouting at all the noisy folk behind you to shut up perhaps?

    Funny how a different perspective changes things!

    I would have thought you had the mountain all to yourselves if you hadn’t included the second photo. Even so, the crowd doesn’t take away from the stunning views.

    When I was doing Munros years ago we met a guy from Dingwall who thought that was the best one he’d been up yet. To him that was the far south and he was delighted to see Loch Lomond and the islands for the first time. Said it was his favourite viewpoint in over a hundred summits.

      Another perspective! To us, it’s so near it’s the only Munro we’ve done several times. We don’t seek them out and don’t do them at all now.

    Two great photogrphs of a stunning view (but still too high for me).
