On an evening in late May 2009 the weather was fine for a tour out onto The Oa penninsula in the south of Islay.
Drive up from Port Ellen, past Kilnaughton Bay, over The Oa penninsula to the end of the single track road. Turn right, rather than continuing on to the American Cemetry and the Monument, along the track to the wee village of Lower Killeyan. Then take a walk over to view the spectacular cliffs and coastal scenery. The view over to bay towards The Rinns of Islay were breathtaking.

As the angle of light was not quite right at the time of day, I did some post-pro with Photomatix, CS4 and NikColorEfex. I’d be interested in any critique on the treatment.
