Seen from the slopes of Beinn Dubh, a sailing yacht making her way north in the Sound of Islay under a red spinnaker (which the crew had hoisted only minutes before I took this picture, good timing by them!). The Paps of Jura tower over the scene, dwarfing the yacht.

A view across Loch Gorm on Islay to the Paps of Jura in the distance. The sun breaking through the clouds creates a nice might of light and shade.
