I saw on the way in that Whisky Bay was open, it has been closed for ages due to extensive flooding... so off I raced.
The cloud had all but nearly disappeared, that is so cruel, all day I watched these clouds with my excitement growing and then an hour before sunset the skies clear.
Anyway I did get some good shots, after shooting the above shot, I noticed that the cloud above was quite dramatic, so I put on a 20mm lens and shot a vertical.
- 7.45pm Finished shooting
- 8.30pm Dinner

- 3.00am Woken by a wind storm, is my new tent going to survive ??
- 6.15am Alarm goes off
I was in what I call "Excited Puppy Mode" when things seem to be too good to be true. The sun was rising directly behind me and the sky was going pink.
It was an amazing moment to see the island illuminated under such an intense sky. I guess it is moments like this that keep me going and give me motivation.
