Seen across a drystone wall on the horizon and captured with my Nikon Coolpix S6200 camera, the famous Standing Stones of Callenish. This was actually the best view that I could get, as from a nearer vantage point there were too many tourists milling about. I’ll just have to go back there the next time! Constructed nearly three millennia before the birth of Christ, these stones are part of the Lewisian gneiss. See link below for more information:-

I am a teacher of piano, clarinet and saxophone and with my Co-Host, Graeme Hunt, run The Magic Of Music and Sunrise/Sunset Scapes on RedBubble. I have been a keen amateur photographer for the past eight years and love to be able to combine both of my passions.

    A superb shot of this magical place. Makes me want to go there again

  • Thank you, Lesley. I am going to have to go back there again. The first time we went it was teeming torrents and the second time I could not get rid of the tourists. Hopefully it will be “third time lucky”!
