I took this last night on a walk along the beach - a very very low tide, so I was able to get angles and shots that are not easy for photographs of Cromarty.

It's part of my "In the style of JD Ratter" set. His were shot in B&W, and then coloured yellow. No need with this one.

Just back from a day in Fort William and Laggan. This is the first time in 20 years that I did not spent the May Bank Holiday at Coldbackie - cutting peat - as Magnus is racing tomorrow (Sunday) on the World Cup course in a Scottish Series Race - and important one as its a qualifier for the Scotland Youth Team. We were at Anoch Mor by 10:15, rode the course and then went to the Laggan course, where there was an open "demo" day. Mountain biking in Scotland is a very friendly sport, so it was a catch up with lots of pals, and the chance to ride expensive demo bikes on Laggans fun downhills.

The Bizarre thing was that I took no photos - the weather was perfect - indeed better than perfect, it was the Highlands at their very very best, blue skies, snow capped mountains, no breeze and cool - but pleasant - temperatures so that every peak was reflected in every loch.

But I did not stop to take a single photo.

I'm still not sure why......
