Photographer's Note

I have decided to mix posts up instead of working my way through several travelogues chronologically. We spent a week on the Isle of Skye shortly after we returned from Thailand, so that's my next stop here.

The Isle of Skye is a relatively big island close to the north west coast of Scotland: so close in fact that it is connected to the mainland by a bridge. The north of the island has three peninsulas. This image was taken on the western coast of the most eastern peninsula called Trotternish, overlooking Uig Bay. The day had been quite warm and pleasant with some interesting clouds as we had driven around Trotternish, stopping for walking, seeing sites and taking photos. We were on the way back to the cottage we had rented for the week, when the sky started to become darker and then we were rewarded by these ‘God’s Rays’.

I see that many people have placed the Isle of Skye in the Western Isles. It is an understandable mistake as it is an isle and it is western, but it is in fact part of the Scottish Highlands.
