The Lone Swan braves the Storm...



Ailsa Craig is about to get a soaking...



Seems to have largely cleared here now.

Excellent storm Paul. Nice structure under the gust front as well as good subtle colouring to the underside. That's something I have been after all day except the Sun was high during the action here so not much shadow or colour from Maghera.  Smiley

Number 1 is a good one for the BBC

That's Ailsa Craig, a rock 40 miles from my house and also over 1000ft high - it marks the entrance to the Firth of Clyde.

It's my own personal "Stonehenge" in that around the time of the Summer Solstice the Sun rises from right behind it as viewed from my house. However such is the weather over the North Channel that in the four years I've lived in my current house I've only managed to see this phenomenon once!

Very interesting. I watched an article in Wikipedia, there are many close-up photos. Have you been on that island?
