Neave Island

By saltireblue    
Please take time to view this large. The thumbnail doesn't do it justice!!

Taken at Skerray on the north coast of Scotland last week.

The sun disappeared behind the only large cloud in the sky, and unexpectedly reappeared through a small opening in the middle of the cloud, and lit up the green strip with the two houses in the middle of the isle. Perfect light!! How lucky can you get?
I literally had only a couple of seconds to capture the image before the light went again.

Thanks for yesterday's votes and comments.

An evocative shot, well caught. The empty houses on an abandoned island in the sunshine is evocative of a past golden age which was, in the scheme of things, as fleeting as the brief sunshine that was used to capture the 'moment' so well. It also illustrates the fact that a good telephoto zoom is essential in taking landscape photographs - which goes against the oft used adage that for landscapes you need a wide angle lens. It also shows that you had your eyes open and your brain in gear. Wink
