Great tyro 2016-08-19 3:30

Ciao carissima Lisa,

Woo, Hoo! This is a stunner!!

This could be nowhere else but Scotland - and probably nowhere else than Skye. The mist (or low cloud) swirling around the cliff tops, the rich greens, a legacy of the high rainfalls and the stark landscape formed by years of bettering by wind, rain and storms - it's all just so typical.

But it's the soft light here which has brought out the lovely subtle tones and contrasts and the rich colours and you have captured them all beautifully in this fine composition where these surreal peaks and the cliff faces are perfectly placed in the frame while the thin ribbon of road underlines the image perfectly.

Absolutely Gorgeous!

Kind Regards e un abbraccio,


P.S. I'm still trying to organise a trip for us to go to Skye soon - would it be possible for you to let me know the location from where you took this - or even details of that 7 Km "loop" walk?

Caro Giovanni

Oh lucky you! I'm with you in spirit and wish you happy travels. I used Portree as a base. It's best that you drive up to the little car park and do the loop from there. This is the Isle of Skye tourism site: which I found quite helpful and has maps. And this:

The highlights were the Old Man of Storr, The Quiraing, Dunottar Castle, Kilt Rock and the Fairy Glens. They're all very well marked. There's a lovely French/seafood restaurant right down in the port at Portree which is worth a visit too ��

Un abbraccio
