The Trip

In August of 2001 I took a trip to Scotland to explore the Highlands, discover part of my ancenstry, shoot some pictures, and get some exercise.

Most of the time was spent hiking the West Highland Way, a 96 mile hiking trail that starts near Glasgow and ends in Fort William, but I also spent a few days in Edinburgh during the International Festival.

The trip was arranged by Mountain Travel Sobek. They've got lots of great trips worth checking out.

The Gallery

During the course of the trip I took about one thousand pictures. Of those, 360 were selected for this gallery.

The html for the gallery was generated by a C++ program that I wrote to parse a template that links all of the images together. Everything was done on a Macintosh.

Each picture page that you view will automatically move on to the next picture if you wait for 16 seconds. To see all the pictures you can click on the first one, and then sit back, relax and enjoy it as one big slide show.

The Equipment

All of the photos were taken with a Canon EOS D30 body, and the following lenses:

  • Sigma 18-35mm f3.5-4.5 Zoom Lens
  • Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II Lens
  • Canon EF 100mm f2.8 Macro USM Lens
  • Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L USM IS Zoom Lens

Juice was supplied by four camera batteries, and images were stored on two 1 GB MicroDrives.

I kept everything stored in a LowePro photo backback. It was pretty comfortable considering that it weighed about 35 pounds with all the hiking gear and photo equipment in there.

The Photographer

When I'm not taking pictures I work as a software consultant specializing in digital imaging on the Macintosh.
