A rain challenge in Scotland, shouldn't be a problem. But it was! With the announcement of this challenge the weather improved and we had almost no rain for two weeks.
Luckily, when I returned from a trip to Holland I was driving through Glen Coe and saw this rainshower coming. The light was beautiful, so I stopped and took some pictures.

At home, seeing the images on my screen, I really was a little bit disappointed in these pictures, especially that special light was missing. I almost decided not to enter, but in the last few hours before rollover I decided otherwise.

Next morning, after 7 votes, my score was 7.57. And although it dropped since then (quite naturally), it always stayed around 6.6.

Not sure how it will end, but I'm glad I submitted it. Thanks for all your kind votes!

What ecmguy said. Just glorious. And if you didn't think the image captured the light, then I cannot imagine what it was really like!!!

I just passed through Glen Coe yesterday. You really portrayed the mood of this amazing place. Next time we will meet at Skye (at Neist Point could be a great choice!)

Gorgeous Kees, congrats on the HM. Scores are starting well, but plummeting by day two, so it seems, to me anyway!
