Fiery forest sunset
Contrary to first glance, this is not a forest fire; just a blustery afternoon sunset with a hint of snow on the way. The sun sinks down behind a ridge of trees with a blaze that reminds us that it is, in fact, a vast ball of flaming gas and not merely a nice yellow circle in the sky.
Forest fires are not unknown in Scotland, by the way. As the temperature drops below freezing, however, and an icy rain starts to slick the roads, the risk feels very distant indeed.
