Eilean Glas Lighthouse

By WeeGeordieLass    
Scalpay is a small, pretty island reached by a bridge from Harris and this wonderful lighthouse was a 3 mile round trip walk from our parking spot.

It was a beautiful morning and the area was deserted apart from me, the sheep and the birds...just so peaceful!

The sea was a little choppy and I thought a long exposure of 30 seconds would smooth out the water and show some movements in the clouds, as I wanted to portray the serenity of the moment.

I hope I've managed to communicate what it felt like for me to be there and view this beautiful scene on a morning that will always stay in my memory.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look
