Storm over Skye

By BillyGoatGruff  
Thanks to the five perceptive folk who correctly voted on yesterday's upload which cleverly managed to slip under everyone else's radar! LOL Wink
Here's another fast and low exocet skimming the waves; I wonder how many folk's radars it will evade! Smile

I persuaded my partner (who was driving, whilst I was map-reading - it works better this way: really) to stop doing her Michael Schumacher impersonation and stop on the road out of Skye and into mainland Scotland when I spotted this storm coming in and the lovely light it produced over the sea and distant Cuillins.
Only managed to get off two quick shots after climbing over the armco roadside barrier while "Michael" was clamouring to get on the blacktop, gunning the engine back into life and shouting over the revving engine "Haven't you finished yet?!?"
I really must get her to slow down, but fear there is little hope ...

Thanks for stopping by, and congatulations if your radar is working today.
Have a good w/e peeps Smile
Bill

I've spotted those sheep, but I presume the exocet is under the water...
