Artist's Description

Islay and its neighbour Jura are famous for their whisky. There are 8 active distilleries on Islay (approx. 3,500 residents) and 1 distillery on Jura (approx. 200 residents).

This view across the sound to the Paps of Jura was captured on the shorefront near the entrance to Bunnahabhain Distillery. Some rocks and abandoned barrels or vats cordoned off the edge of the roadway.

I liked the contrast between the curvy natural hills and the curvy vats in the foreground, as well as between the blue sky and the yellow green weeds.

In the meantime it is a historic shot as the barrels have been replaced by a different display in 2013.

The twin peaks in the distance are the well-known Paps of Jura.

Location: Bunnahabhain Distillery, Islay, Inner Hebrides, Argyll & Bute, Scotland, UK.
