Seathrift on the rocks at Elgol, Isle of Skye.
I don’t usually go in for substantially altered photography, but these images are different. What sets them apart is that changed, they convey perfectly some of the mood of the place, in this case Elgol. It’s a place like any other, people live and work there, visit and play but there’s something else, something quite special and these photos convey it so well - see if you can guess what that is?
(Please forgive the re-posting of a recent post but the Aurora is worth seeing again.)
Skye - where even the footprints in the sand are extraordinary.
Eilean Flodaigearraidh from Brogaig beach, Isle of Skye.
Staffin is home to a couple of beaches. There are some good spots on the main bay if you are prepared to seek them out, but there is easier access to a small area of sand just before the end of the road to Staffin Community Slipway. As well as the sea and sand, you can find some quite astonishing dinosaur footprints here too.
Talisker Bay, a round pebble’s throw from where the ‘water of life’ is made.
(Talisker Bay, Isle of Skye. Whisky, in Gaelic ‘uisge beatha,’ literally translates as ‘water of life.’ The famous peaty flavoured whisky, ‘Talisker’ is distilled nearby.)
The white sands of Morar, where river meets the sea. If you like this, watch the movie ‘Local Hero’ which was filmed here - you’ll be wanting to book a trip to the west of Scotland for sure.
