Breathtaking. There's an amazing mood created by that second shot, with the fog; love it. Great captures

Beautiful scenary - I really like all of them - but #2 is a great shot , the mood , the colors (or lack thereof) and the person standing at the edge for scale awesome indeed.

That's Stu. He's a little crazy (climber) and likes to stand on the end of large drop-offs

I've only been to the Scottish Highlands twice, and I yearn to go back! Your images remind me of why

Beautiful light in most of them, but I especially like the third photo, it has good light, patterns, texture, everything in my opinion!

I still remember our time in Scotland and the highlands and that was back in the 70's. Thanks for resurrecting some wonderful memories.

Bit of a looney, eh? Give my sympathies to the family when the time comes.
