A few more mono’s again from Skye
Nice pictures @stormcrowuk - thanks again for posting. They very much support the proverbial comment about Skye - if you can see the mountains, it's just about to start raining - if you can't, it is. The second worst midgies in Scotland in my experience.
I think these might be re-posts - I apologise for my lack of originality - I'm not sure - I have an awful lot of pictures that look like this. I've never been blessed by the weather gods in my landscape photography - to my mind though, the Highlands look best just before - during - or just after heavy weather or storms. The tyranny of the flawless blue sky doesn't interest me much - it seldom works with black and white film. Which is just as well. They seemed appropriate after looking at the Skye pictures.
Both views over the Rannoch Moor looking west. Leica and film - yours - I.

Absolutely mind blowing Iain. Those skies look so angry yet mystical and my eye was immediately drawn to them. You have the scale spot on. I love those shots mate.
Begs the question Iain - where are the worst midges in Scotland? And come to think of it, where do you find the best midges?
Rum. Yours - I.
