Ben Lawers seen from Calton Hill?

Taken in the afternoon from the trig point on Calton Hill, looking NW towards the point of summer solstice sun setting, and not far off the line which gets -- if I'm right about this -- the setting sun behind the triangle of Ben Lawers. It was a cloudy day, with plenty of small scattered showers drifting across the view. But for a small period of time the seeing cleared up enough to make that vague triangular shadow visible on the middle left of the horizon. The island to the right is Inchmickery, and behind it is the larger island of Inchcolm. The vague dim triangular mountain is above the highest point of Inchcolm.


This photograph has been heavily processed and sharpened in order to improve the visibility of that dim peak on the horizon. Which has also removed the EXIF data, so I provide that below.
