This shot of the Northern Lights always makes me think of some kind of alien invasion! This was shot from the front door of my house on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides off the coast of Scotland. The lights from the house illuminate the garden and the orange glow is from the next village. We often see the Northern Lights up here but it is seldom as spectacular as this. What made this particular evening unusual is that the view is to the east and not to the north where the lights would normally appear.
This lovely little waterfall can be seen from a bridge on the road between Loch Lochy and Loch Arkaig in the Scottish Highlands.
I've been across Rannoch Moor in Scotland on a fair few occasions and I can't remember one time where the sun was shining! Still no matter, there's always a photo to be had there. On this occasion I frightened this grouse from the loch side and he promptly leapt into the loch before realising that he was not a water bird! Much thrashing and struggling later he managed to clamber on the rock for a photo opportunity.
