A Few Days in Scotland, cont'd …

It seems amazing now to think that in one fell swoop we caught an afternoon flight from Toronto to Glasgow then drove for five hours to Kyle of Lochalsh, stopping to take in the beautiful scenery, booked into our hotel and still when the afternoon sun showed up we had the energy to grab the cameras and set out in the car to see what we could find.

Scotland and the Highlands, in particular, are indescribably beautiful. And when that perfect afternoon sun shines on this part of the world, sleep seems to be less important.

This little fellow was very friendly and agreed to pose right in the sunlight for me. He seemed to like us and hung around for a while letting Roël get quite a few great shots of him.

These red berries seemed to be everywhere. I couldn’t resist the colours against that blue sky.

A last, brave sprig of heather in bloom. One thing still on my list of sights to see – the Highlands when the heather is in bloom.

A few rays of sunlight catching the ferns in the shade.

Roël hard at work. I am never quite sure what he is seeing and I am almost always speechless when I see it on the back of the camera afterward. He will be posting some of his images on his blog. You can watch for them at

The afternoon sun can make anything, even a cemetery, beautiful.
