A photographer has captured stunning images of Scotland like you’ve never seen it before – where it could easily be mistaken for a tropical island.
Alessio Putzu, 30, took to the shores of Scotland whilst it was basking in sunlight and captured these unbelievable images.
Despite being renowned for its rainy weather, Scotland looks almost unrecognisable in the summer heatwave.
Alessio, who lives in London, said: “It does rain, but when the sun sheds its warm light on the majestic rugged coastline, on the white sand dunes or on an early morning sunrise at the most windy lighthouse in the UK, it can create a beautiful sight and you immediately fell in love with it.
“Especially when after some good amount of rain, the sun break through and paints everything that you see with a golden spellbound.
“There’s nothing much you can do but just enjoy in silence the beauty of nature.”
