I recently holidayed in Scotland in Kenmore near Loch Tay and also in the Hebrides and the Isle of Luing. Thankfully it stopped raining long enough to take the following miniplanets.
Definitely one of my favourite miniplanet images - this wonderfully serene and almost idyllic stereographic projection was taken at a time that can only be described as the opposite! The mist had just risen for a very short time between heavy downpours, but somehow I managed to get this moment.
This panorama was more like what I remember from the trip - choppy seas crashing against the rocks at Cuilpool on the Isle of Luing. It does however make for a very atmospheric miniplanet.
In the one beautiful afternoon we had in Kenmore I had the opportunity to take this stereographic projection from outside the Kenmore Hotel and gates to the Taymouth Castle.
Kenmore is at one end of Loch Tay. Here I’m standing on a beach at the Kenmore end looking down the length of the Loch, making for a great mini planet
We were staying in the Kenmore Lodge, to which this pontoon belonged. This planet messes a bit with my mind as a result of the reflections in the water. In the far right of the planet you can see the bridge which is in the first panorama.
With this miniplanet I was hoping to capture the desolate feel of winter in the Scottish islands, I think it captures that feeling well.
The final image here shows the gate to the Kenmore Lodge. The lodge has been built on the site of what was the servants area in the grounds of Taymouth Castle, which is why the gates in this miniplanet are the same design as seen earlier.
