The sea has finally warmed up along with some very hot weather and a lot of rainfall. This means that I have actually been doing things other than climbing for once. Sorry climbers this months photos are all watery and proof that I occasionally do other things than hang out in the mountains. I have also managed to take some landscape photos which has fallen a little by the wayside in recent months.
Sailing boat with the Cuillin of Rhum behind. Went for a walk with Hannah today and it was meant to be torrential rain – we were a bit surprised to see this!
Small Isles from the parking spot on the walk out to Rhue.
I have probably put a similar photo up before – an evenings paddle from work in the sound of Luing.Finally got around to doing one of the local canyons. Matt going big on the first jump.
On Expedition with Pete – decided to build him a friend to admire the view with. Some fishing in the rain with my sister and Adam – only three fish! Spent an afternoon on Belnahua on a day where it must have been 30+deg. Belnahua is a great place to explore but all we managed was a lot of swimming in one of the old slate mines. Mark, Hannah and Dave Jumping Dave showing us how its done. Finally the nights are long enough and clear enough for some night photography. Looking North and West from just outside my bedroom!Looking NW. The white spot is a yachts mast head light in the Black Isle Gap.Matt working hard on Fair Steps at the start of Spean Gorge.
