This time last week I travelled from Edinburgh up into the Scottish highlands to a small village on the west coast called Plockton. It describes itself as “The Jewel of the Highlands”. It was my first trip north of Edinburgh and I quickly realised that the potential for good landscape photography is almost endless in this part of the world. Good warm sunlight was always going be a little bit of an issue, because with dramatic scenery come dramatic weather conditions. Fortunately, whilst I was sat on the sea wall looking out over the bay, a few rays of sun broke through the clouds and lit up a small cluster of buildings and white boats. The resulting photograph can be seen above.
