Sunset at Tram Ton Pass near Sapa, Lào Cai Province, North-West Vietnam. This is Vietnam's highest mountain pass (1,900 metres) and it regularly has extreme winds as it acts as a dividing line between two weather fronts - on one side is Sapa which is about the coldest place in Vietnam and on the other is Lai Chau which is one of the warmest. I was perched on a rickety bamboo platform jutting over the edge of the cliff - what could possibly go wrong! There was only the odd moment when I was not completely enveloped in cloud - the whole day had been fog so thick in Sapa that you could not see across the road. So, much to the amusement of the locals I decided to see if the weather was any better at Tram Ton Pass and to try and get some sunset photos. I was at the pass for about an hour, and for about 45 minutes of that time I was completely enveloped in fog. These images reflect pretty much the only time I could take pictures (between cloud and wind gusts and the movement of the platform).

Achnashellach :: Field of the Willows
Winter 2015. On the River Carron near Achnashellach - between Loch Scaven and Loch Dughaill in Wester Ross, Highlands, Scotland. Achnashellach is gaellic for 'Field of the Willows'. Captured at around 5pm on a wet and windy February afternoon. My poor little camera withers and crumbles at ISO 800, but I like the overall colour and texture of these images.
