Another of the images from a few weeks ago on my last trip to the Isle of Skye. The lighting constantly changing creating some wonderful colours and shadows on this amazing landscape. Shortly after this photograph was taken there was very heavy rain, and I was soaked before returning to the car. My apologies again for not been on the site as often as I would like, very busy with work and No time at the moment for Photography. Something will have to change. My thanks once again to everyone for your time to view and for your very kind comments, they are always very much appreciated. Bill.

The clouds fly across the crags here and the light changes in a millisecond you did well to get it right across your composition. So often we get one part right and the other not, I've tried a few times here and only ever been happy once.

A superb vantage spot for this view along the Quiraing: I remember Dougie posting a shot from a similar spot with the rowan tree and road featuring.
A scene for sore eyes undoubtedly, beautifully captured, Bill.

Wonderful image. I took one from near here after torrential rain to be blessed with a wonderful dawn and 20 seconds of the most amazing light. It remains my favourite photographic moment. I'll have to go back to get the Rowan tree next time Grin

Wonderful composition showing the variety of shapes of those mountains
and the varying light in the valley.
Tree beautifully placed and a great sky!
