    An advantage of long lambing season hours is you never miss sunrise or the blue hour or constantly changing weather conditions. I wanted to carry my Fuji but was already laden with enough for a small donkey so have been relying on my iPhone. It didn’t do too badly.

    Sunrises like this made 5am starts and long climbs worthwhile. I startled two Sea eagles from their vantage point on this crag, a lookout, linked to others along the lochs to south and west. Fires gave early warning of Viking invasion. Norse place names indicate it wasn’t always effective.

    Sometimes the tidal dance of the loch was a slow waltz, sometimes a jig. When the wind built to gale force scanning with binoculars from hilltops required crawling into position, weight pitched against the blast.
    Thanks for looking!

    Looks like a great hike! But don't fool yourself – the image quality is just crappy o_O. The lack of detail and the way the iPhone "smoothens" noise or whatever it is – horrible!

    Wasn't it you who once asked rhetorically "Who needs food?". So you could have made space for your Fuji, after all!;)

    Ooh they do look quite worse on a laptop! Tramping the hills these last 3 weeks on one day only did I think I might take my camera as the weight and bulk wouldn't make much difference...! It was the straw that broke the slightly unfit camels back! Posted just to share scenes from a beautiful area, not to suggest the images are of good quality, but on seeing them in larger format admin please delete! :)

    Nice shots. Love the first two.
    I think that the result from the Fuji would have been better but best camera is the one you have with you.

    You took some nice shots Kirsty, good colours and good moody looking ones but I think your Fuji would of done better though. Still good shots though.

    Like your pictures.
    To keep weight down maybe think about picking up a used X100s.

    A very nice series of shots Kirsty, good composition throughout. In my past life, I used to keep sheep, and certainly know what “contractions” are, with my arm up the back end trying to retrieve the other twin lamb! We used to keep Cross Suffolks, and they tended to have twins, or even triplets. Happy days! Have you finished lambing yet?

    Cheers, Peter

    Thanks Peter. You will know the stage of lambing fatigue I have reached at the end of week three! It is 90% through now, looking forward to sleeping in very soon :)

    On the contrary, I think Kirstybell should haul up an X-H1 with a sound crew and make a video documentary of the lambing operation.
    I can almost hear the sound of the bagpipes rolling through the hills and the wind through the loch. ;)
    Allow me to post my "like" in advance!
