Sunlight on Dalemore

Sunlight on Dalemore

The old farm at Dalemore is probably well-known to some people in Caithness, especially walkers and fishermen. The rough road to it makes a pleasant, short walk, and provides access to a lovely stretch of the River Thurso.

The sunlight shining on the buildings had the effect of a spotlight on a stage-set, highlighting them and subduing the background. I could have chosen to leave the wind turbines out, but they are such a feature of this landscape that it wouldn't have seemed right somehow.
