Point of Ardnamurchan, often incorrectly described as the most westerly part of mainland UK. Rum is to the left, nearer and slightly left of centre is Muck whilst Eigg is visible behind the lighthouse. Skye is between Rum and Eigg.
Clyde riverside scene reflected in a curved window of the Glasgow's Riverside Museum. Paddle Steamer 'Waverley' is heading down river with an evening showboat cruise.
This is my third unsuccessful attempt at getting my visualised shot as the sun will only be in the right place on the evening showboats. This was my last opportunity of the 2013 season. Needless to say the cloud was near perfect and the sun was low and shining directly on the bow until about a minute before the 'Waverley' reached me. Back next year then.
The distinctive red, green and cream livery of MacBraynes buses was once a common sight on the islands and mainland of west coast Scotland. This restored example is owned by Martin Walker of the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust. It was built for MacBraynes in May 1960 by Duple Coachbuilders on a Bedford chasis.
The antidote to another difficult day at work and a tense drive through Glasgow's evening rush hour traffic after a work-delayed departure to make Largs just in time for the Scottish Branch of the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society's evening charter of Paddle Steamer 'Waverley'. Great ship, great scenery and great company. Truly the perfect antidote.
