I love creating videos for my YouTube channel. I was already passionate about landscape photography and creating videos about my time out with the camera was a natural extension of my desire to share my photography.
However, there is no doubt it is a lot of hard work. Sometimes my ideas are a bit grand and a little over adventurous. These ideas sometimes pay off, but I normally have to put in a lot of extra effort. It was after one of those "go the extra mile" videos that I decided I need a little rest.

I wasn't burnt out. I just needed a rest. I had spent the previous day driving all over the country taking photographs, but I still had the following day free. I wanted to use that spare day to create another full-on landscape photography video, but I decided that I would benefit more from not making photography a priority.
So I headed out for a walk up Conic Hill near Loch Lomond on a beautiful summers day. I still took my camera, but it wasn't my goal to even get it out of the bag. Relaxing from the photography got me thinking and I decided to share my results in this video:

As I said in the video, I did take one image and here it is:
