Isle of Skye from Coillegillie, Applecross Peninsula, Scotland. by 


The clouds part and sunbeams illuminate the scene.

Collighillie is an abandoned village on the wild and desolate Applecross Peninsula, reached by a walk of about two miles, on a fairly decent path, from Ard Dubh.

A little bit of sad history for you, sent to me by a Flickr contact.

" The villager’s old schoolmaster died and no one from the village was able to teach. The village is so isolated as well. So the government brought in a school teacher from the outside, but unbeknownst to anyone including himself he had TB. By the time they found out it was too late and the whole village succumbed to it."

Shot on a Canon EOS 20D, hand held, f11, iso 100, single RAW file processed in Photoshop CS3. Metered off a part of the sky.
