Favorite family photos of our second year in Scotland

Here's a baker's dozen of my favorite family photos from our second year in Scotland.

Like last year, many of these were selected because of their composition, or colors, or mood, though a couple were just simply cute and I couldn't resist. Unlike last year, I've expanded my subjects beyond just family to include other folks, though that's a bit more apparent in the earlier post of my nearly favorite family photos of our second year in Scotland.

Remember, you can click on the photos to scroll through them in larger size, though you won't get the captions that way.

A couple of the pics below make me giggle. Every time.

On the beach on Inchcailloch in Loch Lomond
A mid-hike break to play in the sand on the island of Inchcailloch, in the middle of Loch Lomond.
Soldiers touch toes at Athen's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
The changing of the guard at Athen's Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers involves a lot of high-kicking and theatrical stances. I admit this pose cracks me up. It has a Monty Python-esque quality, especially with those faces.
Rosalie in her Burberry rain coat
My niece, Rosalie, in her Burberry rain coat.
Looking up the staircase of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Lighthouse in Glasgow
Kate and I explored The Lighthouse, by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, in Glasgow. Our friend and fellow expat, Katy, came along, too.
Grampa Bill and Jackson

Kate gazes at the Crinan Canal in Scotland

On the ski lift
Caught this shot on my ancient iPhone while skiing in Colorado.
Snacking on digestives
Kate snacked on some digestives and enjoyed the view of the Trossachs in Scotland.
Exploring a tunnel on the grounds of Pollock House in Glasgow
Jackson delves, and then emerges, from a tunnel on the grounds of Pollock House in Glasgow.
Rugby sevens at the 2014 Commonwealth Games
Almost a tackle during a rugby sevens match at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Jack on a hike in the Quirain on the Isle of Skye
Credit for the snapshot goes to Kate during our hike in the Quiraing on the Isle of Skye. This one gives me the giggles.
Family photo at a B&B on the Isle of Iona
An impromptu family pic at our B&B on the Isle of Iona, before heading out to explore.
An amazing day on Lunga, part of the Treshnish Isles archipelago. This is one of my all-time favorite family photos.

It took a great deal of deliberation to decide which photos made the cut for this baker's dozen, and which ones were only nearly favorite family photos of our second year in Scotland. Oh, the agony. And now I'm second-guessing one or two.

How'd I do? Did I pick the right ones? Or were some of the nearly favorites better than these?
