Loch Ness

Loch Ness Visitor Centre

It's been awhile since I go for a holiday, so recently in June 2010, I took a short trip to Loch Ness in Scotland. The highlands were beautiful and I even took a boat ride in the lake.

Although it was cloudy, but luckily the rain did not pour. Even a duck flew onto our boat to visit us during our boat ride! Very Happy Smiley However, we didn't see any monster this time. hahaha...

Lovely photos from such a scenic part of Scotland. I love visiting the loch though I've never been out on a boat. Rosie in Scotland

Those photos are gorgeous! When I saw the 2nd photo it look very familiar then I read your entry title that explain what it is. So you think something is lurking in that river? ^_^

That's a nice moment with the duck looking down. Great to come across another blog by an asian.

These are lovely, and I particularly like the texture of the sky in the second shot.

Okay the question is did you buy a Loch Ness Monster t-shirt for souvenir? I'm sure they have something like that for sale right?

These are all wonderful sky shots and I love the way you shot the duck.

Thanks for visiting mine and yes, you are correct, a storm was coming in towards the last few shots.

Sounds like a nice visit. I love the photos. I think the monster was probably taking a nap when you stopped by. Maybe next time you two will meet. ;-)

It think it's wonderful that you did not see the monster! Happy Smiley
