Our first day in Harris when the weather didn't bode too well - the following day it was clear skies and sunshine all the way and far too bright for a decent photograph! Thanks for looking and for your time - comments and criticisms are, as usual, very welcome.
Many thanks to everybody for your votes and comments on Loch Awe Rainbow and particular thanks to Colleen for the GEA and to ChrisStyles, AnneB50, cabbie and Irishkate for their UAs!

This is my kind of photography, I love these days, and I love monochrome.

My Award is on the way Ann.

Quite superb.

That's beautiful weather seen from a photographers point of view, Ann.
That menacing sky has picked out and highlighted its next victim with its light.
Magnificent.

Wonderfully moody: elemental power harnessed for artistic purposes. The mono works a treat, helping to put down the old saying that 'mono doesn't go down well on epz . . .'
