Other soap powders are available

If you've read the lead up to this from my previous upload then you shouldn't be surprised!
Not quite the conditions or image I had in mind but I thought I'd post it to give you all a laugh.

Mrs R stayed sensibly above the rock line!

Bamburgh Beach, Northumberland

A detour via Sycamore Gap added a couple of hours to our journey and by the time we arrived and checked in at the Lord Crewe in Bamburgh the light was fading and one hell of a storm was brewing. A quick change and drive along The Wynding to the beach car parks and this is as good as it got. Apart from us, these were the only people on the beach (there's a dog in there somewhere as well). I'm so glad we (I) stopped at Sycamore for the heavens did truly open twenty minutes later... all through the night and well beyond first light so no glorious sunrises this trip.

Glenfinnan Viaduct, Glenfinnan, Scotland

Sometimes you can be too clever for your own good with a detailed filing system!

Whenever I have a frenzy of a photo shoot, which isn't very often, I always separate out the panoramic images first after the download and move them to their own little directory marked "Panoramas" on the PC before reviewing and culling the rest from my memory cards. Unfortunately, I also have a memory like a sieve and consequently forget about them instantly. I've already posted an image of this viaduct but wasn't quite happy with it, but considering it was our one and only chance to visit then I'm damn well going to upload something to mark the visit if nothing else!

So, while tidying up the hard drive I had a quick look in said directory and came across this one - not labelled, processed or merged.

It's a five frame vertical panorama, which I'm surprised has stitched together effortlessly considering the conditions on the day and even more amazed there wasn't a single rain splash on any of the frames. Most definitely down to the brolly holding, camera shielding skills of Mrs R.

And before anyone asks... and I mean you Paul, the science bit for the viaduct is on the previous image.

Eilean Donan Castle, Dornie, Scotland

Our plans for our last morning on Skye had to be curtailed on account of storm Callum. Speaking with Dave Evans and his fellow togs earlier in the week, they had cut short their own plans and opted for an earlier ferry Thursday afternoon.
High winds and torrential rain had been forecast for Friday and all ferry sailings had been cancelled throughout the Hebrides. With the possibility of the main bridge being closed due to the high winds and not wanting to get marooned on Skye we set off early. We thanked the owners of our holiday home (a wonderful stay and highly recommended) and set off at 8am.

The journey down was uneventful without a hint of what was to come and we safely crossed the Skye bridge roundabout 9am. The wind was noticeably more blustery as we crossed, but the threatened 60mph winds were not scheduled until about 10am and so we congratulated ourselves on a good call. Our last overnight stop was down at the southern end of Loch Lomond and so we had plenty of time to drive there, but I had unfinished business at Eilean and a certain hut now only referred to as "Clutchgate" in our household.

I wanted a few shots of the castle from the side and the "All The Goodness Coffee & Bakeshop" on the peninsular before the bridge offers Mrs R the opportunity of a sit down and coffee and me - all the photos I could take. But like most things on this holiday, nothing was going to plan and the shop being shut didn't help. For me the wind was now blowing so hard I couldn't get a sharp image and was forced to setup low behind the front wing of the car. With periodic rain and spray from the loch keeping the filters clear was proving a bit of a nightmare. But every storm cloud has a silver lining and the now coffeeless Mrs R came to the rescue as a makeshift windbreak and filter cleaner while I faffed in between shots.

The weather was now very much evidently on the change and storm Callum was about to catch up with us. We spent a good hour watching and snapping the ever changing conditions, hoping to catch the fleeting sunrays cross over the castle. They never did and so I cut my losses and packed up. It turned out to be the right call for no sooner had we crossed the bridge and drove pass the castle did the full force of storm Callum empty the heavens. The rain was torrential all the way to Loch Lomond but I still had another stop-off to exercise a ghost from day one...
