West Highland road trip: day 1

Photos from a trip I made to the Scottish West Highlands with Elaine McMurtrie in July 2007. There was almost constant torrential rain throughout the journey, but even in such weather the scenery was quite spectacular. Spending the night in a tent near Oban with a bottle of wine and the rain battering down on the canvas was an experience I shall never forget, and which I'd love to repeat, too.

Spectacular skies and landforms at the Rest and Be Thankful, Argyll, looking towards Glen Kinglas on the road to Inveraray, 27th July, 2007. I think this photo is one of the best landscapes I've taken. The sky was changing minute-by-minute, and it was very much a fluke that I pressed the shutter-release at that particular moment.
