Peacefullness on Barra by Larry Lingard-Davis

This peaceful scene was taken as I was walking around Castle Bay on the Island of Barra in the Scottish Outer Hebrides.
The buildings just left of centre, are the shops in the main street leading down to the boat ramp.
Barra is the home of Clan McNeill, of which my wife Dawn is one of.

Taken with a Pentax MZ60 35mm and later scanned and a touch of HDR ( x2 )
in Dynamic PhotoHDR.


I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    Certain places on this earth have a certain magnet towards camera’s.

    Great composition Larry. The old boat fills the right foreground beautifully and adds to the nostalgic appearance of the village. Tony
