Baugh A Sunset

With a holiday club taking place at Baugh
it provided an opportunity to a Baugh a sunset.
(As you probably know Baugh is pronounced Bag).
Monday the 1st of August was a most memorable sky.

Neighbouring islands stood out in the setting sun.
The Dutchman’s Cap, the Isle of Mull and the Paps of Jura were a delight.
Although distant and separated by the surrounding sea they appeared so close.

Taking the low ground, the rise in the road provided an earlier sunset.
In the almost monochrome picture, the hairs (grass) on the skyline are attractive.
There was just time time to drive and capture the sunset over the waters of Gott Bay.

Standing beside the Baptist Church building the sun sank beneath the rise in the road.

A road well trod
yet the view is always fresh.
Whether it be the road from Baugh to Scarinish
or the walk from home to the Ferry Terminal and pier.

Earlier in the day the sky had been so blue.
Now it was completely transformed.
Breath Taking Beauty.

This apparently lone yacht was not the only vessel in the bay.
A luxury yacht, the Exuma, and a fishing boat were also present.
Slowly, the sun continued its journey until the sunset was complete

On an evening like this it is almost a 360 degree sky of red and pink.
A definite red to the West and pink, North, South and East.
What it is to have Tiree’s big sky.

Now in August daylight hours are getting noticeably shorter.
However, the sunsets are just as theatrical.
This is ‘Life on Tiree’.

Not yet time to draw the curtains.

Now to dream!
