I like the selection of pics. Marsco looks to be a good viewpoint for both the reds and the black Cuillin. The quirang must have seemed very spooky with the mist down.

Thanks all for the compliments. Skye is a photographers dream, with constant weather and light changes. The same shot will look different in a few minutes. After this trip, I realize that I need to get a real camera with a good lens. But the little Olympus I have is waterproof, so it works for kayaking and general outdoor abuse. I was fortunate too, in that the weather was very reasonable for my visit.
