Having started up a hill path in darkness, I was now regretting my decision. The few patches of clear starlight I had seen earlier, had been totally engulfed by the mass of cloud streaming in. All the fantastic images I had in my minds eye were being literally blown away by the wind. Suddenly a small gap in the clouds opened illuminating the landscape in front of me, a brief window of opportunity. I had to react quickly to capture my moment of being in the spotlight. The light lasted just long enough to highlight the lone house and the lower slopes of Sgurr na Stri, the mountain in the background. Photo © copyright by Graham Chalmers.
