Ian, Robbie and I spent a whole day of the Skye Meet with Jamie, who had showed an interest in looking at some locations that were off the beaten track - well, ephotozine-wise, I mean.

The last location we went to, hoping that there would be a sunset, was Waternish. At the edge of Waternish peninsula there's a spot with great views towards the Outer Isles, and there's a ruined church there, Trumpan Church - the location of a massacre: in 1578 the MacDonald clan burned a group of MacLeods alive in this church, to which I should add that this was revenge for the MacLeods doing something similar to a group of MacDonalds.

Anyway, we arrived basically after the light had already started to go, and it went very quickly. I wanted to take a few infrared shots before starting on my attempts to photograph a sunset, but it was almost too dark already. This shot was only possible by using the flash on the arch, which lit up the darkest part of my picture, and I let the camera pick up the light on the scene visible through the arch.

I quite like the result myself. I hope you do too.
