On the way to work this morning, a lovely sunrise, just had to stop for a shot. One of my favourite sunrise locations.

Loch Cluanie

A return trip to Loch Cluanie, where I had spotted the potential for some good photos when driving home on Monday. The loch was still partly frozen with some great reflections.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, originally uploaded by ShirleyGrant.

A gorgeous day here on Skye, with new years resolutions firmly in place I took a walk from my new house, along the Elgol road, over to Corry and back to Broadford.

branches, originally uploaded by ShirleyGrant.

First good day in a while, so an opportunity for a walk. My camera should been making its way back to me, it has been in for repair for 6 weeks. So have reverted back to using my wee Olympus.

Leitir Fura is an abandoned village, only accessible by a forest track. Usually a good walk, as it was today, marred only by the mountain bikers who kept passing me. The forest track is great for bikes, but the path is a wee bit narrow.

Lots of people out today, more than I've met in previous visits, that's what some sunshine does.

I loved the wavy clouds, almost like extensions of the branches of the tree. I had to compose so that the low sun was hidden by the tree trunk.

A stunning sunrise and time to take some photos, it was hard to know where to look!

Knock Bay

No shortage of locations in Sleat to choose for a lunchtime photoshoot, just have to ask - where's the sun (usually hiding behind a cloud!), how high is the tide...

Lovely day on Friday so we headed for Knock Bay, tide out, sun to south, nice castle to north, hills across the water...

Ruined Castle - Caisteal Chamuis

As the tide was out we could walk a fair distance and the rocks and mussel beds were exposed.

Common Mussel

This photo of mussels prompted some recipe ideas over on Flickr, being vegetarian I wouldn't touch them!

Interviewing on Skye

sunrise, originally uploaded by ShirleyGrant.

Another sunrise from Friday. Busy day at work today, interviewing for a senior developer . It always seems to be a lovely day when we interview, today was no exception - we tell candidates that it is always like this!
