Isle Martin & Ben Mor Coigach...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...the sun was just breaking over the tops of the hill behind us and kissing the ridge on Ben Mor and down into Loch Kanaird.
Kin and I couldn't believe our luck with the light, but there was more to come.

Sorry about the dust bugs, missed them here I'm afraid.

Wonderful sweep of the shore line and great light touching the tops. Looks as if this one is "to be continued"... ...

I like curves too. And did you have even more light? You are whetting out appetite.

Kin put up his pano from Inverpoly which was later that day and there's a few more still to come Patrick.

A special place and with excellent company...and yes the weather for the time of year was very kind to us Dougie. A lovely composition here.

best regards,
I expected a bolloking about the Doric... and how would you have fancied the crossing last night?

An overnight in Ullapool it would have been.

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,
