The Gloaming

Not sure why I've never posted this shot before, it's got everything I love in it: the most beautiful woman in the world, a stunning gloaming sky, snow covered Scottish mountains...

I'm quite passionate about what the gloaming is... so for those that aren't sure... this is what the gloaming looks like, it's not just sunset, sunset is sunset, the gloaming is something different, it's a special light, that almost glows with an ethereal quality of peace and tranquility :o)

Those mountains are actually several miles in the distance are really quite big, the sense of scale is a little bit skewed.

As ever, thanks for looking and thanks for your comments, always appreciated.

At Scotland's Edge

Cape Wrath Lighthouse, Sutherland, Scotland.

"Designed by Robert Stevenson and first lit in 1828, the lighthouse marks the most north-westerly point of the British mainland. The construction of the lighthouse required an 11 mile road to be built.

A spectacular and wild place. The name Cape Wrath derives from the norse for 'turning point'." – Ian Cowe
