B&W does a good job of creating gloom where there was none, but if that is what you're trying to convey, this might be the best.

Lovely pix. I've been in isolated spots like that in Northern Scotland. These areas are quite different than other parts of the world that I've seen. Seem to be shrouded in fog and mystery...I kind of like that.

Nice eye, the way you caught the winding road trailing off well into the distance.

Thank you all for your kind comments. It was very cold when I was riding my motorbike there. But what a wonderful place to ride!
And here is the colour version:

To be honest, if you go to Scotland on two wheels you know that good rain gear is essential Riding in the rain is ok for me.
Thanks for taking the time to comment!
