...on the way back from another hillside the light did this just as it was setting.

Down the Elgol road on Skye.

Just enough light to bring out some fg detail, Dougie. Perfectly timed with respect to the disappearing sun, and a good sky above to complement it all.

Beautiful Dougie - just the right moment and with great control of tricky lighting conditions.

Nice to see you backmfrom your Skye trio, Dougie; a most dramatic image, the light so special and throwing colour across the distant mountainside and the underside of the clouds.
Look forward to more from the Misty Isle.
Ronnie.

I love a dark, moody image. Ticks all the boxes nicely.

Welcome back boyo, hope you had a good time.

Excellent low light imagery and that sky has an almost electric feel to it.

Different and delightful image Dougie. It couldn't be any other time of year.

The only real sunset we had and you caught it superbly, especially as it came as a surprise as the sun suddenly found this gap - quick thinking and work on your part.

Beautiful shot !....makes me think of opening a 'furnace-door' in a steel-works, with that fiery glow lighting up the surroundings !!!!!

I've been away for a while & when I come back it's just like I never left,.............. you're still producing those lovely Scottish scenes to make me want to be there.

A wonderful low light capture. Such wonderful colour on the mountain and just enough elsewhere to keep me looking............Sandy

Dark and moody, but still you got a fantastic moment to capture. Hope you had a good time on my favourite place, (one of them... Smile)
