Had another trip along Loch Ness while driving to Inverness.
It was raining but the autumn colours still looked good.
These were taken by the bridge on the A82 at Invermoriston.

Sutherland’s Grove is a particular group of trees by the car park at the bottom of the forest walk in Barcaldine. When you start to walk up the track you pass these small falls on your right. Best seen after a good downpour I took this as the low October sun shone through a short rain shower.

Walked onto the old bridge and shot a video which included a leaping salmon. I grabbed this image from the video. In over 50 years of trying, this is the first time I’ve ever successfully photographed a leaping salmon. It made my day. Once I get Adobe Premiere figured out for HD I’ll post a video of the river and the salmon.
The leaping salmon
and for comparison the same view without he salmon
(just in case you missed it!)
I have removed the second view as the image and © have been sold.
(It was similar to the view above. S.)
I was at the opposite end of the Great Glen yesterday, in Inverness. Weather was great. Missed seeing the dolphins though the locals said they’d been seen as the tide came in. Contented myself trying to be creative with pix by the road bridge.
This from directly underneath the bridge supports remind me of the graphics used for aliens’ legs in space invader movies.

A lovely warm day so couldn’t resist the temptation to go down to the beach. Naturally the camera went too and here are three shots taken there.
I liked the reflections on the wet sand here.
After running comes study – is it a pebble or a shell?
(Actually it was a collection of small marble pebbles.)
Meanwhile I relaxed on the seat at the east end of the beach.

The bus company in Oban operates an open-topped bus tour. It goes on the road under Connel Bridge on its trip and I took this shot as I came out of the village store in Connel and spotted the bus was passing.
Why was I in Connel Store? I had just delivered some packs of “Connel Bridge” Notepaper to Rosie, so if you are looking for some special writing paper and envelopes Connel Store is the place to go!
Weather has been more autumnal than summery up here. Its a bit deceptive though – I look out of the window and put a coat on to go out only to find that while its windy and damp its still quite warm.
I’m testing out Live Writer as an alternative means of posting blog entries.
Waves breaking on the beach, Benderloch.
