At latitude 58° North the sun hardly dips below the horizon on midsummer's day, resulting on what we call "the simmer dim".
Once the sun goes down in high summer, the sky can take on a wonderful colour. Deliberately moving the camera removes all reality, focussing only on those colours.
Just along the shore from this location is the famous whisky distillery, Glen Morangie, which translates as "Vale of Tranquillity"
A moonlit night allows a long exposure which, together with some camera -drag, captures the essence of light over the Dornoch Firth.
Captured looking north on a very cold day in February. Weather seen in this direction normally hits us a few moments later.
The summer sun dips below the hills across the Dornoch Firth, with the clouds forming a "second layer of hills".
Not all beaches are crowded - even in peak season!
