Oa, if it wasn't for the midges!

 The dawn came gently on Islay's Mull of Oa. Banks of mist hung over the windless sea

 Although the mist slowly burned off with the sun...

...the humidity was high and my camera kept misting up.

Another  problem with the lack of wind was a ferocious midge attack. This made loading the kayaks a rapid affair before...

...we tackled the surf and studs to escape their myriad of fangs.
