Welcome to the latest instalment of the Peco & Peel Photography Ordeal.
Peco and I have a simple system for location choices - we get shots each at choosing the location we'll be shooting. It's simple and fair - we had to implement this system because Skye was becoming a recurring theme. Not that there is anything wrong with Skye you understand, but consecutive visits where various falls on arses and a lack of luck with optimum photography weather gets you down. So the "shots each" system at least works for ensuring some variety of locations in which to experience useless photography but great camping weather - as well as the obligitory slips and slides.
It was Peco's pick this time so I was expecting to be heading back to Skye again. Instead the Moray coast was the destination of choice. As luck would have it, the timing for the trip was serendipitous as there is a sunrise event that happens for about a week, twice a year. That is, the sun rises through the sea arch, the Bow Fiddle Rock, at Portknockie in Moray. This happens in May and August. I noticed this a while ago when I was messing with The Photographers Ephemeris and had the place in mind for some future visit.
So with fingers crossed for good weather we headed off.
