...just before I was born, these stones were raised at Callanish on the Isle of Lewis, across the Minch from The West coast of Scotland.
Kin and I had some fantastic light on the the island, it was following us around on our amazing journey.

What wonderful images made all the more beautiful by the lovely light falling upon them. Love them both.

I googled peelie wallie and got "pale and ill-looking" which I don't think really applies because both are great images. I think it would also look great in mono.

Have a great Hogmanay Dougie.

Still some minutes to myself before we go for our yearly walk to a nearby village for dinner. It is about three miles each way and we always manage to come home to the village centre for the bells and fireworks.
Having suposed that you might be at home by now, I wondered if you uploaded already the ring - I was sure it was going to be one of the first.
Super class both images. I can feel the vibrations of those years coming through. Sensational light, and great point of view. I hope you know that I would never ever think #1 is peelie wallie, but #2 just has this magic, tremendous atmosphere.

See you next year!
Johanna

(Incidentally, I was in Scotland today - drove from Bolton to Perth and back - sadly for a very close friends daughter's funeral, she died suddenly at 33. So not the best Hogmanay this year)
