Making the Apple iPhone 6 World Gallery. Time Lapse - Glen Etive
How I made a time lapse with my Apple iPhone 6 and got published in the World Gallery!
Buachaille Etive MòrThe Great Herdsman of Etive stands sentinel at the head of Glen Etive, near Glen Coe, in the Scottish highlands.
In early January 2015 I had an experience that I'll never forget. Finishing work in Edinburgh on a Friday evening, I packed my camper van and made my way west, through the Trossachs and towards the highlands. I wasn't sure where I was going and decided to just play it by ear as there were reports of deep snow and blocked roads. I just wanted to get somewhere remote, wild and camp for the night.
After nearly three hours driving I found myself approaching a favourite haunt; Glen Etive. Still ten miles away I watched as the snow began to fall, steady and thick, my wipers barely clearing the screen even at 40mph. As I wound my way up onto Rannoch Moor the snow got heavier and I wondered if I had made a mistake in coming this far. The A82 is an important road in Scotland as it, effectively, connects Glasgow to Inverness and all that lies between along the west of the country. This means that every effort is made to keep the route open to traffic and as soon as I crested the Moor I could see the flashing orange lights of the gritter lorries. The snow ploughs had piled the white stuff up four feet high on either side of the road and they were still battling the falling snow. If it fell any harder they surely would have lost the battle.
Morning at Glen Etive, Scotland
Glen Etive Time LapseBuachaille Etive Mòr (Scots Gaelic meaning the great herdsman of Etive) is an iconic mountain in Scotland. Standing at the top of Glen Etive, not far from Glen Coe, I was delighted to make this time lapse on my new iPhone 6 and have it included in Apple's World Gallery at http://apple.co/dm_dudleyw. Shot over about thirty minutes while I had a cup of tea and took in the scenery.

@Ronald many thanks for taking time to write. You must have seen some sights over the years if you have been frequenting that area. I love Glen Etive and always sleep the night there on my way north. If i drive from Brighton I try to make it to there in one go. It's a slog but the thought of sunrise in that Glen spurs me onwards and upwards. When I arrive the feeling is of exhausted elation. I've not been to St Kilda yet but I'm sure I will one day. I hope you have an amazing experience and a great 70th birthday. The Yorkshire tea is sustaining isn't it! Thanks again and best wishes :)
Absolutely fantastic I can relate to everything you feel and do, I live in Dunoon and get up often at 4.a.m. to run up to Glencoe before first light, last year in Feb. I arrived at the Blackrock Cottage and felt the cold it was -8 degrees!!, with about a foot of snow on land it was the most exciting day ever blue skys to boot, I designed and carved gravestones for 44 years and work e d up in this area in all weathers, saw your Harris images today we are booked next for a week in June for my 70 th and booked for St. Kilda, to finish the most important thing was our love of Yorkshire Tea I leave the bag in !! Take care and keep doing what your doing maybe bump into you one day
