Clear Sky…… on Skye

Clear skies over the Isle of Skye.  A rare autumn morning on this enchanting Scottish Island……  Early morning mist rising from Loch Greshornish and the prospects of a rather fine day……   and it was.  Memories

Moody Monday….. Head in the Clouds

Skye-Old-Man

The Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Not the usual image of the famous Old Man of Storr and the Needles.  No panoramic views of the island and the mountains on the mainland, not dramatic seascapes.  But here, they do have their heads in the clouds.  Maybe not the usual image…. but for many, this is the weather that they associate with this north east coast of Skye.  Moody for Monday

A Rocky Outlook……………

Scotland

The dramatic Kilt Rock Waterfall.  The name Kilt is derived from the columns formed in the cliffs and thought to resemble the pleats in a Highland Kilt.    The waters for the falls come from nearby Loch Mealt at Ellishadder, near Staffin on the North East tip of the Isle of Skye.  North West Scotland.  Also a reminder of a rare day of sunshine across the Hebridean Islands.

Moody Monday……. It is all Skye

DOI_4919_00047qq

Its all sky, on Skye….  and a lot of water.

The land and seascapes from Neist Point are always dramatic.  More often than not wild,  and when it blows it is usually gale force.  Wet,  but occasionally sunny. No matter what the weather  it is always moody.

The view above is from  the Neist peninsular  looking towards  Waterstein Head and out across Moonen Bay.  North West Isle of Sky, Scotland.

Where ever you travel….

Nearly Half Way……..

Midnight.  Loch Greshornish , Isle of Skye, Scotland

A few years ago we were on the Isle of Skye.  Mid summers eve was approaching, and as we had been enjoying a series of evenings, when the sun only briefly vanished below the horizon, I was hopeful that I would get a mid summer sunset on the actual day.

I did though have a premonition, that after such a great but short run of good weather, and being on Scotland’s West Coast, that our luck could run out.

It did.   Rain came heading in from the Atlantic.  So I was rather pleased that I had managed to get this shot, shortly before midnight, a couple of  evenings before Mid Summer.
