https://shutterdiscovery.smugmug.com/Portfolio/i-dbx8f9g/A I went exploring at this abandoned outdoor swimming pool near macduff, Scotland. The pool water was nice and still so there was some lovely reflections as the sun dropped behind the cliffs.

https://shutterdiscovery.smugmug.com/Portfolio/i-GQPfjMS/A I hiked up Bennachie nice and early, it was really cloudy so I wasn't expecting a particularly good sunrise but luckily the sun shone through the clouds and a beautiful purple color filled the sky.

https://shutterdiscovery.smugmug.com/Portfolio/i-32V8zbV/A This is a lane that takes you through a forest near Mintlaw, Scotland. There was a lovely yellow light catching all the vegetation. There is a path just to the left that takes you into the forest itself, and for some reason it reminds me of a fairy tale.
