Wild west - A wild and intense end to the day at one of the most westerly locations in the UK, Neist Point, watching the sun setting over South Uist as the clouds blow in on a really stiff breeze across the Minch.

A tricky location to read the conditions reliably most of the time, sunset can be very hit or miss here; I've been fortunate on many of my visits to experience some very good conditions.

Cuillins framed - Sgùrr nan Gillean dominating the view of the Black Cuillin framed through the arch of the old Sligachan bridge on Skye.

Some pleasant late afternoon sunshine breaking through to lift the scene.

The copse - The illusion of winter with the trees in full leaf.

Its summer in North Yorkshire and a copse of trees sitting atop the rolling hillside challenges the senses when imaged in infrared.

The dappled shifting light and shadows adds some welcome depth to the contoured landscape.

Castle of light - A brief golden hour light show at the truly stunning and inspirational setting of Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe.

An unexpected, but most welcome outcome; having arrived lochside some 20 minutes before dawn, conditions looked far from inspiring. Light was dull, grey and dismal and the breeze that was gently but persistently blowing wrecked any hope of reflections off the water. It seemed I needed a miracle to happen to come away with any decent images that morning.

Well the miracle did happen for a brief few minutes not long after sunrise. The most intense light of dawn broke through the clouds, perfectly striking the beautiful castle ruins and contrasting the dark mountainous backdrop just as the surface of the loch turned still enough to yield some excellent reflections of the castle. It all came together just long enough for me to capture this memorable and remarkable sight.

A wonderful and inspiring sight at any time, especially so when conditions are as unique and superb as this.

Wild coast - Breezy conditions and some choppy conditions across Loch Scavaig with the waves crashing in onto this wild coastline.

The iconic view over to the dramatic Black Cuillin with some excellent late afternoon sunlight catching the rocks at Elgol.
