After a hectic three day journey to Kintail I visited Benmoor Gardens and unexpectedly stumbled on the Scottish six day motorcycle trial, an international motorcycle trial.  I have never seen the Scottish trial, the standard of riding was amazing.

In my way to the first trial this morning the Loch was like a mirror, I could not resist making several pano's this is the simplest, quick to process.

This is one of many photo's I made this morning on the first sections of 'The Scottish'.

More Kintail views. The contrasts in topography and landscape colours are stunning. In fact, reminding me of Western Norway at this time of the year. Thus I feel a familiar connectivity to the Scottish nature.

Two members of the Pea Family, Gorse Ulex europaeus and Scotch Broom Cytisus scoparius, are on prominent display in the landscape. Neither is popular and rather regarded as pest species,  but their innate beautify cannot be defined.

Beautiful perspective compression a la Birna's style.

Broom and especially Gorse are the scourge of the New Zealand countryside and the presence of Gorse is unfortunately also spreading in southern Australia.
