This is what I call print final, it's from the same place as those sheep are. It's called Chamber of Secrets:

Really good photo's Faolan, why dont mine come out that clear.:P
I think I recognise the harbour, is it Jo'G?...If it is , it looks a lot smaller than when I last visited which was along time ago!..The wind farm could be anywhere in Caithness, its covered in them. I dont recognise the cave, its not the ones near to me.
Lovely pictures, well done.

Aye it's the end o' the world as we know it. The size is probably partially down the the lens compressing the landscape.

Causeymire Wind Farm, a few miles south o' Thurso.

It's the interior of one of the Camster Long Cairn's.

Thank you, don't do much landscapes these days. I couldn't find the shots of Whaligoe Steps though, they're probably on the other system.

I look forward to seeing it 'in the flesh' when we go there in early June.

Likewise for this one. And I really like that shot, it captures something of the unnaturalness of the turbines, as if you have Photoshopped them on!
