Island View

By Irishkate  
I hope I'm right in saying that the island on the horizon is Scarpa where the film Rocket Man was made some years ago. It so happened the DVD was in our cottage in Harris so we saw this old film with lovely scenery of course. The f/g flowers are typical of the machair in the Hebrides.
Thanks to all for V&C for Iris & The Sheep and a big hug to Netta & Helenlinda who graced me with their kind User Awards.
Kate Grin
Correction - Scarp is the island name and The Rocket Post is the film.

Very lovely scenery, looks so idyllic Smile A wonderful capture, Kate, the flowers in the foreground helping to give depth to the image Smile
Just read your comments on my upload, shame you couldn't get accommodation in Whitby for the Goth weekend, but Scarborough isn't too far away, even by bus it's less than an hour away.

I think the island is Scarp rather than Scarpa (they may have made your boots).
