"Last nights sunset from one of the many tracks around a hill called 'Knock of Crieff' behind the Crieff Hydro Hotel. Looking down Strathearn towards the Glenartney Forest. The sun has dipped behind the mountains putting everything in shade but giving the sky a nice warm glow. Patches of mist can be seen in the middle distance. Feels like spring is on the way." – SwaloPhoto

"Five minutes before I captured this image http://www.flickr.com/photos/dvattika/8582737572/, there was beautifully warm sunset light touching the tops of the distant rocks. If you pay attention, you will notice that even the tops of the rocks below the water surface have caught the highlights of the last rays of the sun.
This is nature at its best, when irresistible forces attract landscape photographers in all corners of this planet. This is when enjoyment becomes the elixir of life, the product that keeps us going. Aren't we landscape photographers strange creatures?" – Dimitri Vasileiou

"Waiting to capture a beautiful sunrise from the banks of Loch Fada on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Suddenly, storm clouds arrived and shelter had to be offered by the nearby tree. A snow storm seemed to spoil the morning but soon the storm passed, leaving some cloud hovering around the Old man of Storr. A splash of early morning light turned the hill to a bright pink/orange glow that lasted less that one minute. I was lucky to catch the second part of that glow with the orange hues." – Dimitri Vasileiou

Neilson's Monument is a substantial obelisk at the summit of Barstobrick Hill in Dumfries and Galloway. It is dedicated to James Beaumont Neilson (1792 - 1865), who invented the hot-blast process of iron-making and once owned the Queenshill Estate on which the monument stands. The monument reaches 10.6m (35 feet) in height and was erected in 1883 by Neilson's son, Walter Montgomerie Neilson.
