On the morning I took this shot I went to the top of the Duke's Pass in The Trossachs, Scotland where I got soaked in rain and eaten alive by Highland Midges (the most ferocious creature in the Universe). 10 minutes later the rain blew over the small town of Callander and was lit up by the sun rising over the mountains. 10 minutes later it was gone. I am always surprised by how empty some places in Scotland are, no one else was here to see this marvellous sight. This is an 8 vertical shot stitched pano.

A shot of the mountain Sgurr na Stri (The Peak of Strife) from Elgol, Isle of Skye, Scotland. The weather was a wee bit dreich when I took the photo but it created some drama as the storm clouds swirled around the mountain top. Sgurr Hain is the mountain behind to the right, with the Black Cuillins to the left.

Scottish seaweed. It's packed with vitamins A, C, E, S, K, G and B12. This photo has about 6 different varieties of seaweed, all have a different texture and taste and all are edible. I was driving home from a visit to the West Highlands and just had to stop to photograph the beautiful seaweed at Ardelve Point where Loch Long meets Loch Duich. There's some other interesting sights near this place, for example, the lobster pots on the pier make an great photo. There was a whole lot of tourists on the opposite shore also admiring the seaweed - at least I think that's what they were looking at - tourists can be strange and easily distracted by more normal things that we, Scots, leave littering the countryside.
