The Temperature Rose Today

It got into double figures.  I recorded a maximum of 11.2 deg – fleetingly.  It felt a lot colder in the wind.  And this is the middle of May.  There are less than 7 weeks before the nights start drawing in again and midsummer will be passed!  The mainland of Scotland with snow on some of the mountains stood out for part of the day which was crisp and clear.

  1. What do I know??? Nothing!
    What gorgeous photos of those mountains. And, yes, I will admit, I never thought about mountains in Scotland! THat's not the pictures we see over here of Scotland.
    Seriously. I feel foolish. But it's true.
    They are beautiful!

  2. It must be so good for the spirit looking out at those scenes! Not a speck of ash in sight! Hope you are feeling as bright as the weather.

  3. That really is some view you've got on a clear day, with those far-off, dreamy-looking mountains on the horizon...

    I know what you mean about the temperature, it's been pretty much the same here. Feels like spring is very slow this year. But I guess it's the same in Scotland as here, the hottest part of summer usually not until July-August?

  4. Ha Lisa. I was a bit surprised because I always thought (you see, what do I know?!) that people think of Scotland as the Highlands - the mountains (some of the Western ones are in these photos)- which in actual fact make up the Northern half of the country only.

    But then how many of us know other countries unless we have been there? I've seen a lot of California and some of northern Michigan and that's it so far as the USA is concerned. The rest of my knowledge comes from that which I see in films and on TV. And, of course, nowadays in the photos of my Blogland friends.

  5. GB, these are smashing but. Why is there always a 'But' in life? a UV filter and a good smack of contrast would make them great. forgot to say before glad you got a clean bill of health.

  6. Adrian. I did give them a dose of contrast! I also made the point somewhere in a comment on a blog very recently that unfortunately, unlike you, I can't easily put a UV filter on my camera. It's the one disadvantage of my crossover camera versus yours.

  7. Only three or so years ago I was over in the middle of those mountains...well, sort-of: with my daughter looking for monsters in Loch Ness!
