Scotland – the ever changing view

We’ve been in Scotland for the past 2 weeks on holiday, Fort William to be precise and it may come as no surprise to you that I took just a few photos while there.

The place we stayed looked down the valley towards Ben Nevis and it seemed every time you looked out the window the view had changed. Weather systems blow through that valley very quickly so one second you may see nothing but white cloud and the next the sun shining on the mountain tops.

Of all the photos I took while away I think this first one may be my favourite, I love the way there is low cloud and high cloud giving you a glimpse of the mountain through the middle like a portal to another world. The second photo is a glorious sunset with the sun hitting the top of the mountains giving those gorgeous orange colours.

    One of the reasons we do love Scotland!

  3. Gorgeous! I do love Scotland. Did you miss midge season? They are the only blight on the glory of Scotland!!

  4. Great pics, although I think I prefer the second one for the colours. We really are spoiled living here, but we need to make the effort to get out of the city more often. Getting better all the time!
