I got this just a few hours ago, after enjoying a walk to the very end of the Sleat peninsula on Skye. Yesterday and today, we have had continuous sunshine! Combined with a sharp frost that has lingered all day long, so I am happy with that !!! So much nicer than grey leaden skies and howling gales and torrential rain of the past SEVERAL weeks! The forecast is for it to continue, fingers crossed!
This was taken just after the sun was setting to my right, I was in deep shadow, but I spotted the magenta light on the distant hills of the Knoydart peninsula, a rather wild and wonderful place. It was not easy to get to my vantage point, the rocks were covered in ice, then there were big heaps of slippery and wet seaweed to clamber over, with hidden rocks underneath. I got wet footed, and cold, but I could care less, I got my shot of the day. I would have preferred some clouds in the sky, but is that not the photographer's lament? Nothing is ever perfect…Could have been better… LOL !!

Another amazing sky on my walk to work. When I left my flat it was dark, but the light was just about bouncing off the upper clouds. So I thought it was promising, but by the time I got downstairs and outside this is what I saw!
There were another couple of people around taking photos as well - happens quite often. I think they are going to ambush me one morning and steal my 10-20mm
No processing on this apart from straightening up and slight sharpening. Hmmm colours are slightly washed out in the upload to Flickr.
Clouds are fibrous cirrus merging into fibrous cirrostratus (apparently).
see the rest of my walk to work set.

Spent the day over on Arran one of these days I'll go and not come back!
Managed to miss the sunrise colours even with the early ferry it was cutting it to fine trying to walk into Glen Rosa to catch it. Spent the morning making my way up the Glen debating whether or not to head higher, in the end after watching the weather I decided just to head back to Brodick for sunset. My original plan had been to catch it in the hills though with so little snow just now I couldn't motivate myself any further. This is my favourite shot of the day and and my last from the island!
