Sunset Over Loch Ness

There was an amazing sunset over Loch Ness last night.

It was a very wet day and the weather system finally cleared away to the east just as the sun went down behind the mountains and Abriachan. You can see the line of the end of the weather system moving across through these photos and the blue sky behind it.

It was so bright that for a while the light went very orange.

Dr. Geebes, the stone man

Dr. Geebers, or George, has been on Dores Beach for a couple of weeks now, making the most amazing structures with simply the stones from the beach. His installation is popular with visitors and locals alike.

George is homeless and so he is walking the entire coastline of the UK to raise awareness of issues facing homelessness, making his stone designs as he goes.

There's more information about George and his intriguing journey in the Press And Journal article at Press And Journal

Chilly Clear Day At Loch Ness

It was a beautiful clear day yesterday at Loch Ness, and the insects went mad for the pollen, preparing for the winter ahead.

The Michaelmas daisys were particularly popular, with every flower occupied by some sort of insect, bees, wasps, butterflies and wasps.
