Great pics and they are amazing roads with stunning scenery.

Reminds me of our trip a couple of years ago. Every corner revealing another srunning backdrop.

A lot of pebble-dashed cars at the end though. 😪

How's the 911E resto coming along - any updates to share?


Slowly, the e is going into paint next week. I have not been pushing this with the 930 taking most of my focus. The 930 will be getting sold and then full speed ahead with the E.

Olympus OMD E-M5. Love it, small and compact but rivals a full frame SLR.

Thanks for the kind comments. It was a great weekend Thumb

What a complete bunch of utter *****. When the first tourists child is killed by a wolf I wonder if it will still be so amazing. I hope they all get shot before they can breed Evil or Very Mad

The dream of having wolves is all very good as long as it's kept as that, unfortunately the reality is a different story.
It's all well and good in the wilds of Alaska but the Highlands not a chance.

Had an Olympus OM-10 in a different life and it took some of the best pictures I've ever taken, must have been the camera!

It’s a dumb idea conceived by somebody who has never lived in the Highlands no doubt

Actually they were brought in to try and address the deer breeding explosion that's happening. Many accidents are occurring involving deer/stags and they are wrecking forests and vegetation on a scale never seen before.

Wolves are more afraid of man than man is of them.

As long as wolves have food(which they do up North) they won't come within a mile of anyone and will do anything to avoid coming in contact with man.

The remote parts of Scotland are so vast you could spend 10 years trying to see one and probably never would.

"“There are wolves all over Europe and they don’t cause problems. When was the last time you heard someone being killed by a wolf?

“Statistics show that you have more chance of being killed in a car going to visit a wolf in captivity than you have of being attacked by one in the wild. And no lynx has ever killed a child or a human. Reintroducing them could allow our children the chance to enjoy our amazing natural heritage which has been wiped out by upland sheep farming.”

"Peter Smith, CEO of the Wildwood Trust, said the charity wants to reintroduce lynx in the next few years, followed by wolves in around two decades, and brown bears within 50 years. But they first must meet rewilding protocols set out by The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and then gain a licence from Natural England.

“These animals were all once native to Britain, and the benefits they could bring to the ecology of Britain would be immense,” he said

“Wolves and lynx will change the behaviour of the deer, causing populations to drop naturally, which helps plants and trees to flourish."

Not so sure about bringing bears back mind you Surprised

"“There are wolves all over Europe and they don’t cause problems. When was the last time you heard someone being killed by a wolf?

Actually records show that there has been over 70 Wolf attacks in Europe.

If you want to control the Deer population there's a very simple and effective solution tried and tested over decades, shoot them! The Venison goes into the food chain, 2 birds one bullet so to speak.
When you watch programmes about landowners wanting to reintroduce wolves into Scotland they are generally well meaning ex Lawyers/Businessmen who have a dream and buy an Estate in the Highlands and impose their dream on everyone else, it's all romantic jibbersih!
