So, do you live in the houses off to the left or the cemetery on the right?
If that was the light in December, clearly May was the wrong time to visit...it pretty much was always raining or overcast when Martin Evening and I were there.
No I actually live in Kyleakin (pronounced ki - lakkin), just over the Skye bridge and onto Skye proper. Broadford is our local village and just up the road from us - they have a shop
The image above doesn't really do justice to the scene, as Lula only lets you upload files of less than 1mb and the original image in its native resolution as it sits on my PC is a whopping 1.6gb.
Yes winter is probably the best time to be here photographically speaking, but spring can be amazing when all the wildflowers come out and autumn is pretty good too when the leaves turn yellow and the heather is in full bloom. And the trip across by ferry to the other western isles from Uig (pronounced oo - igg) at the north of the island, only takes an hour or so to get across to South Uist, then on through Benbecula and North Uist and across to the Isle of Harris and Lewis etc. You would need about 10 days to really get around to see some of the best locations on and around Skye and the nearby islands.
We have not organised anything yet, but Ann and I are thinking we could take small group photographic tours around Skye and some of the Western Isles and to all the best photographic locations. I think someone used to do this in the past, but I think they have now retired, so it is certainly something for us to think about providing.
