6th Annual Mobile Photography Awards

It has been a bit too quiet on the blogging front here at RKAB Works. It seems that there have been many other things that have kept me from telling you what we have been doing. I'll correct that now by telling you about one of of those things.

Back in October 2016 I took my Brother-in-Law and my nephew up Scotland's most southerly Munro, Ben Lomond. The Munros are Scottish mountains over 3,000 feet and currently there are 282 (January 2017) and they are named after Sir Hugh Munro who produced the first list of them back in 1891.

Ben Lomond stands at 974m (3,196 feet) on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond. It is the closest Munro to Glasgow and has some amazing views.

Our journey up the mountain started with low cloud and a cold wind leaving us thinking it might be a miserable trip to the top. As we climbed higher, the clouds parted and the sun came out. We had lunch at the top and then the journey down rewarded us with outstanding views.

I'm a keen iPhone photographer and took the view shown above with my iPhone 6. I'm a great believer that it is the skill of the photographer that creates the picture not the type of camera.

I was so pleased with the results that I submitted this image into the 6th Annual Mobile Photography Awards and I wasn't the only person to like it. I received an honourable mention in the Landscape category. I am very pleased!
