The silhouetted building is a derelict Thomas Telford church. I always mean to try and go there,but it seems enclosed in private land.

Lewis War Memorial tower, erected in memory of the 1,151 young men who lost their lives in the First World War. Lewis lost more men per capita of population than any other part of the U.K.

The cross is a memorial to those that died in the Second World War.

A different perspective of the memorial can be seen here, which shows how it dominates over Stornoway.

skyenocturnus - 'King of the Gloaming' for May 2007

I am very pleased to annouce the most blogged member of Scotland in the Gloaming for the month of May 2007 is…

- May's 'King of the Gloaming'.

Well done skyenocturnus! Thank you very much for your contribution to the outstanding standard of imagery that makes up the group pool.

I asked skyenocturnus to share a little of the background on his photography.

1. Below is his personal favourite gloaming photo which was featured on the blog in May.

Moll view I

2. Tell us a little about how you shot the photograph, the location, what particular aspects attracted you, anything special you did to get the shot and any comments about the Scotland In The Gloaming group.

This was taken from the Moll road, near Sconser on the Isle of Skye, looking North up the Sound of Raasay towards Ben Tianavaig and the Trotternish Ridge. I've been taking shots from here for years - I just love the horizon profile. Aside from this, I like the colours and simplicity of the image.

The image was captured on Velvia using a Canon EOS 650 (sadly now suffering from an intermittently sticking shutter, but kept just for IR film) at 28mm and f.8. I spot metered from just above the horizon and reduced this exposure by half a stop to improve saturation.

Scotland in the Gloaming - it's nice to be associated with a group of people who appreciate that a scene often improves after the sun has set.

That is an amazing shot (reminds me of some I got on a similarly saturated evening over the Clyde). The colour range is just so full it's like you can't quite appreciate the whole picture all at once. A very good representative of your other atmospheric twilight shots. Definitely deserving of the Scotland in the Gloaming blog. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Sunset over Lake of Menteith, Trossachs

The Lake of Menteith (Gaelic "Loch Innis MoCholmaig") is a loch on the Flanders Moss, the flood plain of the upper reaches of the rivers Forth and Teith, upstream of Stirling. It was the Loch of Menteith, until a 20th century English map-maker made a mistake and called it the Lake of Menteith!

The are a number of small islands in the loch. On the largest, Inchmahome, is Inchmahome Priory, an ancient monastery. The priory served as refuge to Mary Queen of Scots in 1547. She was only four years old at the time and stayed for three weeks after the disastrous Battle of Pinkie Cleugh in September of that year.

The loch is not particularly deep and can freeze over completely in exceptionally cold winters. If the ice becomes thick enough (10 inches) an outdoor curling tournament called The Bonspiel or the Grand Match is held on the loch. The event can attract thousands of curlers despite its rarity. The last Grand Match was held in 1979.
