Over The Sea To Skye


I nearly didn't get chance to feature my screensaver for this coming week. Here it is : it is a photograph I took in Mallaig, Scotland back in April 2006. The weather was glorious, the scenery was breathtaking. Just after taking the photograph I was able to take one of those boats and cross to the Isle of Skye. It is a visual memory which will keep me warm and content for the week ahead.

  1. I hope it was one of the larger boats.

  2. Lots of color from boats and buildings. Yes , it would be a memorable shot.

  3. Never been to Skye, Alan. Perhaps a summer holiday is looming?

  4. Mallaig never looked like that when I visited Skye - mind you that would have been 50 years earlier than your photo.

  6. My heart beat just that bit faster when I read your title -near and dear to me. We have a gorgeous March photo of "over the sea to Skye" from 1977....very precious to us. It wasn't the magnificent day you've featured here but Skye is impressive in any weather. A magnificent screen saver.

  7. I really like the West coast of Scotland. I once commented to a Scottish friend how tranquil it seems. He laughed and told me he'd recently seen a local paper headline (local papers are often priceless): "Violence Erupts at Mallaig May Queen Pageant".
