231. During a walk in the mountains I had taken a series of photographs of these clouds. Actually they are clouds and windblown exhaust fumes of jet airplanes. After a while I saw this rock. I chose this picture for the site because of its dynamics. It looks like a meteorite that came in from the left and created a dust cloud upwards and to the right. Fortunately it was not a meteorite otherwise there would have been a huge crater with my remains at the bottom.

226. I'm always fascinated by erosion caused by water and the resulting forms. One wonders how many centuries it took to make shapes like this. I don't have any idea how fast stone erodes under the influence of water. But just imagine the rock diminishes with 1/10 of a mm every year. That's hardly visible with the naked eye. It still adds up to 2 dm in 2000 years. The age of rocks is usually measured in millions of years, so 2000 years is very short.

Last night we watched a documentary on the BBC about Campbelltown in Kintyre on Scotland's westcoast. We were there this summer, beautiful scenery. The documentary was about expectations for the future for young people, it didn't look very well. You don't notice that as a tourist.
The fishing business was not like it used to be. A fisherman renamed his boat: "Olympic Fire" "Because it never goes out"

214. In the neighbourhood of Durness. This is a small town in the northwest of Scotland. Beautiful dunes overgrown with marram (beach grass) See also picture nr. 213.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Read a lot of books during the holidays.
For instance:
THE WOMAN IN WHITE by Wilkie Collins. Published in 1860.
This book is sometimes called the first detective and in my opinion one of the best ones. It was the third time that I read it, but it's still as gripping as the first time.
THE PALE HORSE by Agatha Christie.
I thought I read all the books by Christie, but this one I found in a secondhand bookshop in Scotland.
DEAD FAMOUS by Ben Elton.
Ben Elton is my favourite stand-up comedian. I didn't know he wrote books too. He wrote for Blackadder, The Young Ones and The Thin Blue Line. This is also a detective, but very funny at the same time and it works for 100%. It's about a British "Big Brother" house. A murder is committed under the eyes of millions of television viewers, but nobody could see who actually did it. A razor-sharp satire on the tv-world and so called famous people. I bought all the books by Elton and they are all fabulous.

Not always suitable for good photography. But once in a while dramatic skies when the sun came out for a minute.
