I’ve debated putting this up picture of the Red Cuillin for a while now – it’s one of my favourites from the Isle of Skye, but the panoramic format really doesn’t translate well to this blog. Still, I finally decided it was worth sharing, regardless of the limitations of the display format – I hope you like it!
I don’t know about everyone else, but I’ve had a very long week, so here’s a bit of cuteness to welcome the weekend! This is one of my favourite puffin pictures, but going back through the archives it looks like I haven’t posted it here before – and if I have, sorry, hope you don’t mind seeing it again 🙂
I’ve been told the Memorial Day weekend is considered to mark the start of summer here in the US. As someone who is a much bigger fan of cool weather rather than hot, I thought I would kick the weekend off in style with the moodiest and most non-summery picture I could put my hands on – the Pentland Firth, the strait between Scotland and the Orkney Islands.
Scotland is full of dramatic scenery, but also of quiet beauty – like this hut, nestled in a slight hollow for shelter against the inclement Scottish weather.
It’s hard to describe the feeling of power and scale you get standing at the entrance to Fingal’s Cave on Staffa Island, but this picture comes close, at least for me.
