Amazingly as we got out the car in Glen Nevis, there was the first patch of blue sky, and it was a perfect day from then on. It was a delight to meet a series of beaming faces throughout the circuit, on a day that you feel happy to be alive, and lucky to live in Scotland.
The video and photos say the rest....

I use 3 cameras. A £70 kodak playsport for some of the video, and the underwater stuff, as it's completely waterproof. It hangs off my rucksack strap, so its easy to grab for a quick shot. But the stills it takes are naff.
The panorama shots here are on an iphone5, which I also used for some of the video. It's quality is amazing, but until I get a better case, it's for nice weather only.
The rest of the video, especially the timelapse stuff is on a Canon 7D. It's tough enough to leave filming on a rock for 5 mins! All the other photos are with the Canon.
