Good morning Dougie,
I wonder. For 20 minutes this wonderful image has been in the gallery and no votes. Ok, I love to be the first!
Superb light and sky once again. The view to the sea and the small isle at the back make a good frame for the fg cairn and the broch. The texture in the fg rocks is superb and the wee bit of green heather looks very smooth. Altogether a great image. Great as a start into the day.
Take care my friend,
Johanna

I can not improve on Johanna's appreciation of this, nor on Kin's, so I shan't try. Terrific image!
Best regards

Like the way the light has picked out the far mound Dougie, looks like you found some of those blue skies during your visit.
Two weeks roming the Uists in the spring for me, just sent the deposit off this morning, 12hr drive + 1hr ferry Smile

Glad to see you did get some good weather while you were out on Lewis. We were watching the forecast and thinking of you both.

This place brings back some happy memories as we were staying in a cottage just down the road from this broch when we decided to move to the Highlands in 2001. Definitely a good decision!

All the best

Sue
