Wow. After several years I am the winner of a FS! But this means a lot for me in several ways: I've been to Scotland several times in the last 4 years but despite of that I had never been able to go to Neist Point, one of the iconic places of the Isle of Skye. But then, at the beginning of January I've been asked to shoot a video there and so I went with friend Fortunato Gatto and after several days of rain we found a great spot of wonderful light at Old Man of Storr (second place in the previous challenge) and Neist Point.

So thank you so much, this win has an even better taste!

ETA: I didn't explain it very well. I won a FS but it's been a lot of time ago:

Congratulations Alex! Had no idea you had not won a FS yet. That seems like an impossible thing for your talent level. Beautiful image and very fitting for it to be rewarded here.

PS You are catching up with me in Top 10 Ribbons! These last 2 challenges did not help things at all ;)

You brought the viewer there. Beautiful scene so well shot without overdoing the processing. Well deserved blue.
