A small trip in the Scottish Highlands

Postby abhirup » Wed May 18, 2016 1:51 pm

I recently had an opportunity to go on a trip in the Scottish Highlands. To be honest I was not prepared for this trip and had not taken any equipment with me to measure the parameters. It was a leisure trip for me where I discovered that this country is full of aquatic and semi aquatic plants and moss. I was able to take snaps of 2 such places which were rich in aquatic flora (mainly moss) which I would like to share with you all. The first one is in the Isle of Skye a place called the Fairy Glen and the other one is in a small forest stream in the Grampian Mountains in the south eastern part of Scottish Highlands. The North Atlantic Ocean brings in a lot of rain in this part of the world and because of that a majority of the highlands remain we throughout the year providing favourable conditions for aquatic and semi aquatic plants to grow well. Fresh water lakes are also abundant in this part of UK which are known as Lochs.

Here are some of the shots..

So beautiful, eye soothing and most importantly untouched from human intervention. Very good Abhirup. Please try to show us something more aquatic world through your eyes.
