Enlightened Elgol

By MrsS    
YIPPEEE!!! Friday at last! Smile

Since you seemed to like my portraitscapeŠ from here, I thought I'd inflict the landscape version on you too! Wink

Not much else to say, really - I could drone on for hours about the midges and the light and the fact that the boys had nicked all the decent places round MrC's stone etc etc etc, but I''ll spare you for once Wink

Off to find a "thirst grenade" and start cooking tonight's curry! Grin

Catch up with you all soon, hope you like this one - Thanks for calling in - have a great evening Smile

BTW - LARGE might just be more "Enlightened" Wink

Paid my first visit here last year and went more or less straight off the boat, glad we did too as it was the only sun we saw on a 2 day visit to Skye Sad

Barely saw a midge all the hols though, except for an evening by a loch...where I met all of them!! I like this, the sort of shot I would want when I eventually return there Wink

Looks a bit more peaceful than my visit that's for sure. Stunning location isn't it? I spent about 10 hours wandering around, just watching the world (and passing storms) go by when I was there and couldn't tear myself away until it was almost completely dark Smile

Sorry beautiful image to Smile
