Beyond Kinlochbervie lies one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Sutherland: Oldshoremore.
The rain clouds lift and show what beauty they have strewn across the higher mountains in our region.
The autumn fairs may be some time away yet, but the first day of September here in the Swiss Alps has arrived with the kind of chilled air which tells me that there is snow on the mountains.
A tremendously colourful winter sunset in Brienz, where I used to work, looking from the small tourist village along the lake to Interlaken.
