from the Eshaness series -

This expanse of water caught my eye as we left the coach by the graveyard at Eshaness.
Whereas my fellow guides clambered up to the headstones, i kneeled down at the ege of water and watched and dreamt… Late September light was playing its game of hide & seek in-between clouds – the heart could not resist…
