Tiree: Who Paints The Skies?

Who Paints The Skies?

As we look out our west facing window the sun is dropping down, but we calculate we can just about make the crofting township of Vaul. It is cutting it fine! We step out of the car, to be greeted with, “You got here just in time!” The fireball that is the sun is about to sink below the horizon. What a sight the distant outer Hebrides. They appear so stark against the glowing sky.

On the way back home, the pier at Gott Bay beckons. Somehow the sky is becoming a deeper and richer colour. We have photographed it so often, but the scene cries out “Go on, one more shot.” Who can resist such an appeal?

The Bible song-writer states, The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. (Psalm 19:1)
