The other highlight of our Scottish Highlands trip, was the gondola ride up to the Nevis Range. They call it a gondola, but to me it’s a cable car. Gondolas make me think of the Venice boats navigated by Italian men in straw hats. Anyway, it’s not the gondola ride itself, but the scenery from the top of the mountain.
The mist lifted and fell in cycles when we arrived at the top. I must be out of rhythm with nature because whenever I got to the end of a walking trail and stood at the viewpoint, the fog descended and all I saw was whiteout!

I love gondola/cable car/skylift rides. Sometimes the rides themselves are scary, but the views are always spectacular along the way.
I agree with you. And the views here were spectacular on the way up as well as down. Funny how rides in different directions give you a different perspective.
Ha, that’s funny I’ve been having the same problem lately. Whenever I take the camera out it gusts and pushes me and shakes the camera! …Your bench shot has great atmosphere, Spotted.
Thank goodness for the bench!
Been there, done that. REALLY hate it when the fog kills the view WC. But loved your bench shot!!
Park benches are mightily handy things to have something to focus on in the fog!
