Light opportunities

The weather can be a bit fickle in Scotland - and that's being kind.

Light can change dramatically and suddenly. This can be both good and bad for photography because while this changable light can certainly add drama to your pictures, it does mean you must always make the most of your opportunities when they present themselves.

If ever there was an example of taking your photographs when you have perfect light, here it is. I took this very short video while my boat was on a mooring off the beautiful Scottish island of Arran. The low evening light was just magical and I took lots of pictures of the small town of Lamlash with the spectacular mountains of Arran in the background.

But just look what the weather was doing early next morning...

Enjoy the video - and remember, never expect beautiful light to last - press the button now!
