The Rainbow Trees

We had been pelted by hailstones, drenched for hours in heavy rain, and buffeted by the howling winds. Now, on the Bealach na Bà, blocked in a snowdrift…

… and rescued by our own hard labour, a pair of snow-shovels and Kirsty’s great driving skills just as the gritter appeared around the corner;-)

While strolling along the Beechwood Trail towards Applecross House a couple of hours after our snowdrift adventure, we and the trees were bathed in sunshine…

Then it was over. But I slipped in a shadow-selfie just before the rainbow disappeared completely.
