Ill Communication

By Jon_Briggs
As soon as you get off the ferry that takes you from Lamlash on Arran to the jetty on Holy Isle, this is the first thing that you come across on this lovely islet.

Due to the fact that there is a Buddist Monestry on Holy Isle, there is a very serene and laid back nature about the place, and such modern intrusions such as mobile phones are frowned upon.

However, the buddist people on the island are lovely and after walking the island for three hours in the sun, one made me the best cup of Earl Gray I've ever had.

Even if you did want to use your mobile, you can't, due to the fact there isn't a reception on Holy Isle, even from the top (see previous pictures for other views of Holy Isle)

This shot made me smile - I agree with Rowdy 49, mobiles, they are the best and worst thing ever invented. Tracey

Thank you all for your comments.

I was reasonably pleased with the way this picture came out as it was the first time I'd ever used Fuji Provia, a notoriously good but tricky film to get right.

I feel that a deeper depth of field would have been better to show the idilic back drop of Holy Isle.
