Memories of a Mid- Summers Eve

Disc One

Loch Ewe, Wester Ross, North West Highlands of Scotland

Officially at 23.34pm BST it is the Summer Solstice.  We have been lucky and caught many mid summer sunsets whilst travelling in Scotland.

This one was rather special in some ways.  It all started so well, just a few clouds to add interest as the sun slowly sank towards the horizon.  First the colours came and all was hope, then a breeze started to ripple across the bay and within a very short time clouds rolled in from the north. This was the last we were to see of the sun. Those clouds lived up to there threatening promise and that night we had torrential rain and the following day gale force winds.  But that is Scottish weather for you changeable and spectacular.

  1. A brilliantly sunset! My eye was also caught by the circular ripple in the foreground…it all seemed to have a symbolic symmetry.
