Tiree: Windy Weather


Wild weather looks like this! Blue sky being chased by dark threatening clouds heralding the next downpour.

As portrayed by the above photograph there are no trees to indicate the strength of the wind. A bench lies on its side blown over – and not by vandals. Unsecured wheelie-bins are tossed in the air, emptying contents that are then caught up and blown here and there.

Standing at the war memorial attempting to capture the scene, the white horses galloping across the bay and the Passage of Tiree, it felt as if I might be caught up as my feet and body are lashed by the wind. And to think this is just the lower end of the wind-scale.

Take a closer look at the above scene by double clicking on the photograph. Not the best of photographs, but I didn’t want to be blown away!
