Push or Pull?

A couple of days ago I saw these two boats coming up the canal towards us, as we were doing the daily dog walk. It was clear from a distance that the two boats were very close together, and I assumed the first boat was towing the second.

Bright Eyes

I took this photo on the evening dog walk two nights ago, when we had some lovely weather. I quite liked the composition of the photograph, but it wasn't until I started processing the photo that I noticed something else special about it. As it was in the gloamin my smartphone decided to fire the flash. I noticed the flash when I took the photo, so I disabled the flash and took another shot. After all, the smartphone flash wouldn't have an effect at a distance of around 8-10 metres. However, I was wrong. When processing the photo I noticed Neachdainn had bright eyes. Even from that distance, with the smartphone's weak flash, it was enough to create a reflection in Neadainn's eyes. As nothing else in the photo shows any flash effect, Neachdainn's eyes look mysterious. I like it.

Who did this? Who added Nessie to the Highlands' welcome sign? Whoever it was, it is absolute genius! The original sign had an empty loch, someone has used a marker pen, or similar, to add the Nessie image. I drove past this sign, northbound lane of the A9 at Dromochter, about three weeks ago and I'm fairly certain Nessie wasn't there at that time.
