    Default Go West

    headed out west today with a thermos of soup and boy was it needed!

    Portskerra Harbour


    viewpoint between Strathy & Bettyhill


    lots of frozen lochs but this was the prettiest I saw near enough to photograph


    Starting to play around with the exposure now, some I got right others I didn't!!

    dragonfly,
    I agree with MPH, the practice is definitely paying off, there are some very good photographs there, Torrisdale Bay and viewpoint between Strathy & Bettyhill particularly catch my eye.
