Wee Blue Boat

Inverpolly Reserve, Sutherland, Scotland.

This wee blue boat always seems to be tied up at the side of this remote little lochan in the Inverpolly reserve. I usually pass it by with a casual, "I really must stop and photograph it one day, thought", well this time I did, mainly because the light was first class and the colours of the hills against the blue of the boat worked so very well. I love these conditions on the very edge of weather fronts, the lighting is nearly always sublime.
