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?

Default To ikeharel: Snow.....

Thank you, Ike, for your kind words!

The weather in these parts is quite changeable and by the next day the temperature had increased to around 10蚓 and the snow all disappeared apart from on the very tops of the hills. So now everywhere is just wet and muddy! However, I'm sure we'll be having some more falls of snow soon.

Interestingly, here in Scotland we often don't see any snow before Christmas. The snow usually comes later and the heaviest falls of snow are usually in late January and February.

Thank you once again.

Kind Regards,
