Walking the dog

A well kent Cromarty resident walking his dog as the sun sets over the emigration stone on the Links.

Evening sun has been in short supply this summer, so when it does come out the links and beach tend to be full of residents and tourists alike, enjoying the rays.

The sun sets behind the Ardross Hills, on the 19th July.

This summer's miserable weather has limited the opportunities for late evening beach strolls, and sunset shots.

Happily last night was an exception.

Whale, originally uploaded by ccgd.

Interesting ethical dilemma - whale meat on the menu, Minke Whale to be exact. Hardly an endangered species, although caught in less than a straightforward way.

Any way people say that whale meat is not very pleasant.

Wrong, absolutely delicious. Think a cross between the finest calves liver and a fillet steak.
