I loved this image when I took it; but the problem I had was the tremendous range of lights and darks, so it took a fair bit of work to try and balance the picture to make it presentable.

It is actually a first floor room, and the garden behind is the other side of a moat. The little figure in the background is cooking some potage with lots of garlic and the smell of food cooking over an open fire had drifted into the room. So along with the image you have to imagine the aromas of a pomander being made, and the smell of cooking over an open fire all mingling together!

I really like all your pictures. I enjoy your approach to processing and the results you achieve. I shall come back to see your pictures again.

The photographer in Dunvegan called Heather, I wonder if that is Heather Lions? Skye is a place that attracts both painters and photographers. We have quite a few really goods artists up here.

Yes that rings a bell - She always used to shoot on Velvia slide film; but came up with some lovely scenery and seabird images.
