West Ending I – Ardnamurchan Point from Bay MacNeil, Ardnamurchan
.
There’s nothing better than heading way out west to watch the sun go down, especially when looking at a sunset across dramatic seas. Here, the lighthouse at Ardnamurchan Point stands proud on the horizon, to mark the most westerly point of the British Mainland for passing ships as darkness approaches.

Window on Orion – Looking Across Loch Sunart from Rockpool House, Resipole, Sunart
.
The weather forecast for the early hours of yesterday morning was for the clouds to disappear and the sky to clear, so I was hoping to get a few shots of the Orionids Meteor shower. Got up at 04:00, cloudy and raining, so back to bed. Got up at 06:00 and clear skies for an hour, so sat and watched the Orionids from the comfort of my armchair. There was too much cloud about to make me want to venture outside.

Calm After The Storm – Bay of Flies, Near Salen, Ardnamurchan
.
As Storm Ophelia passed and the skies began to clear, I saw some lovely light over Loch Sunart, so just had to leave the house and head down to the Bay of Flies to take a quick photo before rushing back to for my dinner.

Calm Before The Storm – Lochan na Dunaich, Near Salen, Ardnamurchan
.
There was perfect calm before the arrival of Storm Ophelia on Monday, making it a great time for a wee wander around Lochan na Dunaich on the Alphabet Trail near Salen. The autumn colours are developing nicely.

Out With The Old - Rockpool House, Resipole, Sunart
.
Well, after it sitting in the garage for a year, we’ve finally got around to getting our new sign put up. It's great to see that we're now on an even keel 🤗😂😂😂.

Paws for View at Lochan na Dunaich – The Alphabet Trail, Salen, Sunart
.
It’s my first birthday today, so at 1 year old, I decided to learn a little bit about Gaelic on the Alphabet Trail near Salen this afternoon. There are signs along the trail explaining the 18 letters of the Gaelic alphabet, each of which is associated with a species of tree or shrub. I just had to stop by the lochan on the trail and ponder how important nature is to the Gaelic culture.

From Heaven III – Loch Sunart, Resipole, Sunart
.
We're hoping for some clear moonless nights like last month because, almost a month to the day, we witnessed a green tinge in the sky that called “airglow”. It happens all the time and across the whole globe, but was particularly strong on this occasion, with flickering being visible to the naked eye. The green comes from oxygen atoms about 60-65 miles high in the atmosphere, which have been excited by sunlight during the day causing them to release molecules that then re-attach at night, emitting the green light in the process.

Harvest Moon – Loch Sunart, Resipole, Sunart
.
Well it took a while for last night's Harvest Moon to appear above the clouds, but when it eventually did, it lit up the shoreline of the loch in front of the house beautifully 👍

Young Roe Buck. Just managed to snap this before he saw me and jumped over the fence, disappearing into the woods

Paws for View at Camusdarach Beach – Camusdarach, Glenancross, Morar
.
What a day. On the downside, I just had my coat clipped. On the upside, I get it done in Arisaig, which means I go for a good run about on the beach at Camusdarach afterwards. It was a blustery day, but that meant I had the beach pretty much to myself.
