...the weather front was coming straight at me, I decided that it was daft to stay. I don't often leave early from my favourite Lochan on the Moor.

Thanks for the comments Doug. I'll be visiting Scotland (Inverness area) from tonight until friday, so will hopefully come back with some useable shots.

you have some excellent work in your p/folio.

I like the nice balance in this shot with the moody clouds and foreground, and not forgetting the light touching the background.

Fantastic shot, the horizon and sky are stunning but for me all the action is in the foreground - those rocks and grasses merging with the cloud reflections. That's a picture in its own right.
Just spotted the HC, very well deserved.

Patrick the jet stream drags the weather from the Northern States and Canada and then it collides with the warm air rising from the Gulf stream to my understanding , plus the cold from mountain ranges like the Cuillins, and the weather goes crazy. In Scotland the weather is about to break or just has.

Knackered as I am, I simply had to drop in to say hello. The band of clouds sweeping through the picture, high enough not to hide the mountain tops, the very nice foreground, pin sharp - a great image of a great place.
Take care,
