Gavin said: "Being out in the hills and trying to capture the rugged landscapes and changing weather of Scotland is where I am happiest.

"Blà Bheinn on the Isle of Skye is one of the hills that I have wanted to explore for a long time. Last October, with a spell of good weather forecast, I headed up the hill before sunrise. After a cold, hazy start the cloud began to clear and the sun lit up the surrounding hills.

"This photograph was taken looking across to Clach Glas, Sgùrr nan Each and Belig with the Inner Sound of Skye in the distance. It was a great experience at the summit, appreciating the scale of the landscape and the forces that have shaped it over millions of years."
