The second of the three posts related to our summer holiday in the Western Highlands of Scotland. On 22nd June the weather was beautiful so drove to Sanna at about 9pm for a walk and to watch the sun set.
At this time of year in Ardnamurchan the sun sets very late, It was just after 10.20pm when it finally dropped below the horizon, however it stays quite bright until about midnight. We drove back to our chalet sometime after 11pm, stopping off at Kilchoan Pier for a look across the water, it was so bright you really didn't need headlights to see where you were going.
The big sky displayed the most magnificent colours, beautiful purples, oranges and pinks.
As usual there were more cattle and sheep than people, just a few of us sharing this beautiful place
The water looked metallic as it changed from orange to purple as the sun set
And finally the sun dropped below the horizon darkening the clouds and setting them on fire
I used the sunset setting on the Panasonic Lumix to take some of the photos on Sanna and it really did bring out the actual colour of the sky. Although it has darkened some of the images a little, I like the effect, especially the silhouette of my hubby and the dog in the first photo.
Another post or two to follow on Scotland, the next one is Harry enjoying Sanna.
Take Care All
Until next time
