Hi Tommy, this was yesterday afternoon (23/7). Was there all last week and no wind at all, so midges were murder!

Excellent shot, hope to be getting something similar as I volunteer with Mountain Rescue and get some great opportunities to work with the RAF Search and Rescue Sea Kings.
The skill of the pilots and crew is amazing especially when rotor blades are practically touching cliff faces because its to windy for the helicopter to hover above the cliff.
