Another one from my trip to Scotland a while back, this was a beach on the north side of the Applecross peninsula overlooking Raasay with Skye in the distance. It snowed heavily just after I took this, and I remember seeing a huge stag standing on a nearby hill silhouetted against the falling snow and dying light in the sky, it was a special moment.

Many thanks for looking Smile

The Applecross area is very special Mari, I need to spend more time there, I tend to take others there and forget to take pictures myself.
Love the reflected sky over Skye in the stream and the hint of the Cuillin along the horizon.

Thanks everyone Smile

To Wullie, I had put my kit away at that stage, so didn't capture the stag, but it was just one of those rare moments that will remain in the memory banks forever, not sure I could have done it justice with the camera. Smile
