Photo Spot Details

The sun is setting behind the Isle of Skye (the hills in the distance). The loch in the foreground (Diabaigas Airde), was partly covered in ice, muting the reflected colours a little.

This shot was one of those lessons in not simply assuming that the view in the viewfinder is the only one worthy of record. Turning round 180 degrees showed (second photo) how the sun was illuminating the Ben-Damph Forest.
