Marsco and River Sligachan, Isle of Skye, Scotland. by 


The beautiful Isle of Skye.
Typical Scottish Highland weather, bursts of sunlight, lasting for three minutes if you are lucky, between heavy showers that soak you to the skin, lasting around five hours. Or more. LOL !
You don’t have to be mad to live here, but it helps, as the saying goes ! A magic place all the same !
Have you ever tried to set up a tripod where the heather and bog myrtle grow in abundance, teetering on the brink of a raging burn? (Burn = river) It ain’t easy !
It causes you endless grief, for one thing, the blasted tripod wobbles around, and it disturbs those dear wee midges, which bite you to the brink of insanity, then you have a wee puppy craving attention threatening to knock the tripod/camera/you into the burn, and I can’t swim either.
Combined with Family members watching your attempts and laughing then getting bored, it is a small wonder that any images get produced at all. Professional ?? Ha Ha Ha Ha !!
Hysterical laughter !

    Great shot. Like your editing. Bet you can’t say that title 5 times straight as fast as you can. I know I couldn’t. I agree some of the best shots don’t come easy.

  • Give me a few glasses of my home made wine and I can say a whole lotta things !!
    Get your drift, yep, the best shots are the ones that come hardest.
