Still at the Old Man of Storr for a few shots yet! I started out shooting at this viewpoint on this fine November morning, but with time on my side before the rising sun appeared decided to make a dash for the more elevated position on the mountainside. After capturing a series of pictures up high, I raced back down the mountainside to get back to this position, hoping I would be fortunate enough to capture both locations in decent light. Although the light did appear, before long the clouds opened up too much making the bright scene exceptionally difficult to capture. To make matters worse the wind by now was so fierce it was difficult to keep your eyes open, let alone keep the tripod steady! In between gusts and before the clouds cleared away too much I did manage to capture a few pictures though, including this one with some gorgeous sun rays.
