Across to the Isles

By jeanie    
We went here to see if the seals were at home as they often stay in this little area, at the end of Portuairk. No seals in residence but probably because the tide was high. It was late and I never expected to take any pictures so left my tripod in the car down the lane. Then this happened.. I had to take my fleece off, and use a rock with fleece to balance the camera to shoot this delicate sunset. Needs must Smile..... I should have bribed my nephew into running back to the car for me!

The islands of Rum on the left, with Muck in front of it, Eigg on the right, and if you view large, you can see the Cuillins on Skye in the distance between the two islands.

Thank you Bev, Carol, Laurie, Ron, Mac, Stan, Barbara, Chris, Ollie and Raul.

Pastel shades were all I got, Chris - this was the sum amount of colour and it soon died away again.

Like the tones and details in this Jeanie - well captured.
Does it need a slight tweak to the horizontal as it looks to be sloping slightly to the LHS.
Regards Richard.

A view that makes me salivate. I love the broken cloud appearing to fan out from the distant isles, and the colours are a joy.
