Atmospheric shot - I'm sitting in a Euro-dungeon at the EC, it's p*ssing down outside, and Belgium is generally flat earth. So this is a great reminder of what I'm missing. Any info on camera/lens etc?

It was a basic Canon Ixus 700 digital compact. Taken about an hour before sunset. Being December and being in north-west scotland sun was very low in the sky to the south-west.

PS I think the updated version of this Camera is the Ixus 900

Breathtaking. If it weren't for StreapAdair, this'd be the best photo i've seen on UKC.

Awesome picture - knowing it was with a compact means I have no excuses for not getting ones as good!

I now live in singapore and so love seeing photos of the scottish mountains all the time. But never has one photo made me want to go home so much before.
