Canon EOS Kiss X 1/160 second F/9.0 ISO 200 43 mm

Planning a trip to Kyoto? See the best of what Kyoto has to offer on one of my private photography workshops: Classic Kyoto Photography

Beautiful photo to start your series. These are the colours I remember of Scotland. I'm going to Scotland in 2 weeks time, but only to see the Puffins on Farne Island. Can't wait for the rest of the series.

Sash from Adelaide, Australia

That's the type of sky I always imagine when I think of Scotland, not that I've ever been there. I'm looking forward to seeing some of those famous landscapes and waterscapes. I do hope that you've managed to capture a Kurgan or Highlander or two in the digital format. ;)

PS I thought you were missing in action somewhere due to the lack of correspondence. Send me an email telling me all about your adventures when you have time/inclination.
