Waterfall, Autumn Photography Tour

What a fabulous week, thank you to our two lovely guests who joined us for our first week-long Autumn Photography Tour here in Forsinard.

The weather was very kind to us for the week, with only a few short showers and one very windy day. But the skies were full of moody clouds interspersed with blue, the colours were starting to shine through with beautiful rust colours covering the heathers on the hills and the red/orange leaves of the trees. The salmon jumped while we watched on in awe at their strength and resilience to such a big hurdle, with huge gushing waters constantly pushing them back.

The treats were endless with the impressive Red Deer Stag’s bellowing by the side of the road and a well-known haunt where the Osprey fly (who have left for the season) confusing us with similar large birds, who surprise us with their lovely white tails when they took off, there’s no mistaking a Sea Eagle once it flies and we couldn’t contain our excitement at such a find.

But there were many simple pleasures, from the numerous bright red Fungi, to the old ruined crofts with stories of the past and my favourite the flowing, tumbling, serene waterfalls which we could have whiled away many hours taking pictures, just trying to encapsulate this calming scene.

We can’t wait for out next set of guests to arrive and to share all the wonders that this beautiful, calm landscape has to offer.

With 4 months of settling in to our new location, we are very excited to be having our first group of guests at Forsinard Lodge, in just over a weeks time. The autumn is coming on nicely and we are spending a lot of time on the ground researching location for what we hope will be great landscape and wildlife photography.

The tree’s are just starting to change in colour and the fungi is starting to appear, with all the recent rains we should find even more and of course them and the streams and rivers are running harder. We are watching out leaping salmon and checking out further site for some wonderful waterfalls.

The Red Deer have started to bellow so we have high hopes for the rut this year, although we have already been very spoilt with the sightings and pictures through the summer.

We’ll keep you all updated as things progress.

A somber evening here in Scotland.

Our deepest condolences for the passing of her Majesty The Queen, truly the end of an era.

Red Deer Stag Forsinard

Over the last few months we have been very lucky to see a group of Red Deer Stags and a group of Hind’s staying around Forsinard and the Lodge. It does seem to be the same group and the Stags are Currently still in velvet which looks really lovely. We have not had the opportunity to photography the Red Deer through the summer before so its very exciting to able to get these very different looking pictures, and of course we can’t wait to see what the rutting season brings.

We have been working on a project to photograph them which is on going, but here are few pictures so you can see what we have been up to. If you are interested in any of our tours to this area then take a look at our Forsinard Lodge page for more details
