A few days ago I happened to write about the rescue services which serve us here in the Hebrides. On Saturday I was suddenly shaken by a helicopter flying low directly over the house. Any helicopter makes considerable air pressure waves and they are even more obvious if you are directly underneath. So I grabbed the camera and went outside. The chopper was flying across the valley and I saw that it was flying towards a group of people which included ambulance personnel.
The unfortunate casualty had been in an accident involving one of her horses (I assume that she'd been riding it). The incident took 10 minutes from beginning to end (first to last photo).
