Kyleakin Harbour in Evening Light. Loch Alsh, Isle of Skye, Scotland. by 


Kyleakin is the first village encountered on the Isle of Skye, when you cross over the bridge from Kyle of Lochalsh…….this is where the old Ferry boat used to land, which I don’t miss at all, romantic it might be, but darned inconvenient !!
The old ruin you can see behind the boats is Castle Moil………a few facts for you…….

“The 14th Century Castle Moil has had many names in its long history. Also known as Dun Akyn (Norse for Hakon’s Fort) and An Caisteal Maol in Gaelic, it is now a romantic ruin. Sited at the Skye end of the road bridge in the village of Kyleakin, the castle has Norse connections. Legend has it that a Norwegian princess, otherwise known as “Saucy Mary”, ordered a chain to be hung from the castle to the mainland so that no boat could pass without paying a tax.”
Nothing new under the sun then, eh ??!! LOL !!

A three RAW HDR, shot on my Canon EOS 50D, polarising filter fitted, iso 100, f23, Auto WB, processed in Photomatix, then sprucing up in Adobe Photoshop CS3.
I used HDR because of the extreme light / shadow.
