    #Lovewilderness photo competition highlights

    By Rupert Shanks, Chief Storyteller

    We were spellbound by the amount of beautiful images in our recent #Lovewilderness photo campaign.

    From glowing sunsets across glass-calm lochs to roaring stags in misty glens. There was some epic photography from beautiful wild places across Scotland and further afield.

    Due to the sheer number of entrants we would like to share a few of our favourites that you might have missed.

    Something very other worldly about getting above the clouds for sunset. Makes me want to try and do that more often. Summer night on A’ Mhaighean …..above the clouds. Photo: David John Robertson

    I am a self taught photographer, I never took photos in the winter because the trees were bare of leaves and I thought everything looked dull. Then I discovered low light, changing of light and now I’m out trying to capture all the winter sunsets on Loch Tay! Photo: Archie McLaren

    A huge thank you to everyone who took part in this campaign. It was so inspiring to not only receive such a wealth of great images but to hear the stories and emotions that connected them.
