The scene: a moving boat out in The Minch as we sailed out of Loch Broom on a moderately easy swell as night fell. Added to that a camera using the equivalent of a 640 mm lens this was never going to be the perfect photo. But the huge orange disc sitting on top of a mountain in the Highlands of Scotland was just to good an opportunity to pass over. So there's no claim here to anything other than a photographic record of a memorable moment standing on the side of MV Isle of Lewis on an autumn evening.
