Catching up (or What I Did On My Holidays)

Work is getting in the way of photography unfortunately, but here's a quick catch-up. Went on the Scullomie to Sletell ranger walk and saw this rather fine palmate newt:

Then it was off to Gairloch for a week with Mum and my cousin. Gairloch's very pretty:


And it was just my luck that after all the time I've spent looking for otters up here, the first time I get to photograph one is when it pops up in the bay in front of me as I'm having breakfast on holiday!

We saw some very dramatic weather at Red Point:

I love your photography and the views of Scotland. My husband went to Scotland once many years ago. I never had a chance to go. He has always wanted to take me there. He said I would love it, and seeing your photographs, I'm sure he is right. The mountains and wildlife are gorgeous. Please keep posting!
