Storm clouds 

Troup Head, East Coast, Scotland


Troup Head is set along the beautiful East Coast of Scotland.  I had arrived early and planned to wait for the evening light.  This means a  2 hour drive home in the dark if not staying overnight but it is always worth taking the chance and is no hardship taking in the beautiful views and watching the gannets.

You often see the weather developing out at sea and would quite often pass you by. On this evening there was this amazing storm cloud developing (I do love my clouds!).  I thought I just have to capture this cloud and would be perfect to have a gannet flying in front.   You can see on the horizon a cruise liner which shows the scale of this massive storm cloud.
