Happy Snap

The west coast of Scotland isn’t always like this in August. Sometimes it rains as well.

This is a colour picture taken with my phone. I think it turned out OK. Amazing how that happens, isn’t it? You have your Nikon, a couple of expensive lenses, tripod, lens cleaner, waistcoat of many pockets and somehow your output just looks bland, uninspired, touristic (is that a word?). Then a moment happens and snap. Wow.

To give this scenically wonderful area its due, previous trips have treated us to light breezes and wall-to-wall sunshine. It is rarely this foreboding in summer. It was a bit of a shock, I must admit. Still, one of the few things worse than being on a boat in shitty weather is not being on a boat at all.
