A Sight for Sore Eyes
What a treat to get away on holiday. Our trip to Tiree was cancelled last year and held over to this year. I was getting worried we would not make it. However we did and it was super. As always I had my camera with me. You never know if an assignment will present itself. We had and evening drive to try and catch a sunset. Ballevullin beach is a good surfing beach but it always has the best sunsets. This picture was taken at 11pm at night. The Scottish Daily Mail spotted it and used it in their feature on the glorious sunshine that Scotland had been basking in.
Brooch In A Box
My better half makes some lovely silk stitched brooches in a lovely metal box. She had made some in the unique colour of the island. What better a place to show off each colours than on a beach. Check out her shop.
We had a stop over on the Island of Coll for a couple of days. Another glorious Scottish Island. It is a very small place with one hotel and one cafe. I had a walk down to the jetty near the hotel. I loved the colours of all the lobster pots. This picture made The Herald’s Picture of the Day on the letters page.
Chatting Over a Cuppa
Photography work has been starting to come back now. I had the pleasure of a visit the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther to see their iconic ‘Fifie’ Reaper sailing boat. I met 95 year old Coull Deas MBE, former long-time skipper, and Boat Club volunteer Jim Wilson, who were taking a break after a day working on the £1million conservation job. What a laugh that pair had during the photocall.
