Isle of Skye summer

Isle of Skye, Scotland. Easterly wind gives fine weather, choppy sea and orographic cloud on Ben Tianavaig (1352 feet). Taken in August 1971 with budget Halina Paulette 35mm camera on Agfacolour slide.


"Weather" magazine (Royal Meteorological Society) used this as a cover photo a couple of years ago. Proves that cheap cameras and inexperienced photographers can capture something worthwhile given the right time, place and a bit of luck.
