Kin and I couldn't believe our luck with the light, but there was more to come.

I could not go to bed before having seen the today's picture, could I?
Your trip must have been special - and someone up there responsible for the weather loves you!
Such a great light on a gorgeous morning!
I had a quick view at my map and wonder, has this been taken somewhere on the beach near Ardmair?
Thank you for this wonderful picture,
Good night,
Johanna
