Before putting anything on Photo.net, I will put a few of my better photos up here. I used my film camera for the shots I hoped would turn out more artistically. These digital shots are meant more as a documentation of the excursion. These are all from the ‘Five Sisters of Kintail’ hike that we did on Friday.
When we first got out of the minibus on Friday morning, I joked that we were about to climb the steep rise in front of us. We then went on to do exactly that: through the fog, with one backpack dropped and recovered from at least 100m below before we reached the first ridge.
Here we are atop that ridge. On account of the fog, we didn’t get much of a view for quite a while.

Ecology on Scottish mountain tops is a study in grasses, lichen, and perhaps sheep.
When the fog did clear a bit, we got a close up view of the legacy of glaciers upon the Scottish Highlands.
