...It's been crystal clear most days here until the Muir Burning of the heather started and most of the time now you can't see your hand behind your back.

***I've lifted the contrast to get rid of the haze from the smoke it just looked terrible.

I hope Heather is enjoying it. Best keep your hand behind your back. A good one for your return.

I have heard of the burning heather, not a good situation.
No sign in this image of the depredations: all looks peaceful and even warm. A composition of warming tranquillity.
Good to see you back, Dougie.
Regards
Bill

A first class lowlight composition with beautifully controlled light and colour.

Lovely image, Dougie. I was there on Thursday evening last week and only got about four images before the Cuillin was obscured by the smoke - doh!

I hope the burning season went well, Dougie, with no catastrophic out-of-control burns.
No sign of the smoke and haze in this idyllic scene, at least.

It went on for days Malc and the Cuillin all but vanished for a couple of days. Must have spoiled a lot of holiday trips on the boats across the loch.
