I went to Glen Etive and it rained, good Scottish Rain. There was drizzle, vertical rain, horizontal rain, sleet and torrential rain. What to do - replicate the James Bond Skyfall image. OK so its not an Aston Martin DB5 and I'm certainly not Daniel Craig - but I like the shot anyway. It was the only good shot I got in two days.

For 15 minutes about 0600 on two or three days each year this happens in Finnich Gorge. Too early in the year and the sun is not high enough, too late and it has moved round out of view. The photo was taken standing knee deep in the freezing water. Am I nuts?
Sunrise over the mountains of Assynt from Sgurr an Fhidhleir (the Fiddler). I wild camped on the peak of the Fiddler to catch dawn over the North West Highlands. I didn't get much sleep as the tent was battered by 40mph winds, gusting to 60mph, but it was worth it.
Fionn's Rock, Glenn Dà-Eigg or by its alternative name, 'The Praying Hands of Mary'. The rock was said to have been split by Fingal's arrow in the 5th Century.
I raced up the mountain to catch the dawn over the Highlands. Buachaille Etive Mor is the mountain to the right, with Beinn a'Chrulaiste centre and Rannoch Moor in the distance.

The view south from Cul Mor in Assynt in the North West Highlands as a rain storm blows over Stac Pollaidh. Cul Beag is the mountain the the left with the pointed peak of the Fiddler in the distance.
The layers of The Quiraing, Isle of Skye.
I visited the Glenfinnan Monument at Loch Shiel in the West Highland which commemorates the rebellion of Bonnie Prince Charle in 1745, when I noticed this driftwood sitting in the loch providing a perfect focal point for the photograph.
An Stòr (The Storr) on The Isle of Skye. I climbed to the cliffs behind the Old Man of Storr (centre) to capture the morning sun as it emerged over the top of the rock pinnacle. The cliff face is unstable with a lot of rock falls (see in photo) as a result of the Trotternich Landslip - an ancient landslide.
Stob Dubh (the Dark Peak) of Buachaille Etive Mor, Glencoe, as the first light of sunrise strikes the summit. Shot from Stob Coire Raineach. I climb in the dark to capture sights like this, makes the world feel special.
I keep returning to this image I took of the Easains. I love the contrast between the warm pink light of the early morning sun and the cool blue tone of the snow covered glens.
