Lagavulin distillery just left of centre, Dunyvaig Castle behind it. Lagavulin Bay stretching almost all the way to the right, notice the waves breaking on the treacherous rocks protecting the bay.

Strange light effects in Bruichladdich, Isle of Islay

Picture of some weird light evening on an evening at the coastNo, I have no idea what this is, but I think it looks quite nice. I took this picture with my smartphone on a rainy November evening on Islay, just outside Bruichladdich distillery (that’s Bruichladdich pier in the background).

Flying a drone at Lagavulin, Isle of Islay

Picture of a drone hovering in the air near a bay with a distillery on the other sideDrones are often used to take pictures (or shoot video) from the air. Which is what I was certainly doing on this April afternoon (see e.g. Lagavulin distillery and Dunyvaig Castle from the air), but at the end of the flight (the battery indicator is showing nearly empty) I had a few seconds left to take a quick snap of the drone in action before landing it safely.
