Time to Reflect

It’s the end of a day when the face has a warm glow.
A day when the Isle of Tiree itself had the opportunity to glow.
So much so here are some photographs that never got an airing.

No it’s not the Isle of Tiree!
However, this beautiful scene was captured by a Tiree resident.
A resident who experienced being stormbound on the Island of Barra.
The photograph taken from their hotel window arrived before they flew for home.

With the MV Clansman redeployed on the Uig Triangle
the Lord of the Isles has temporarily taken over the Oban/Coll/Tiree route.
For operational reasons she set out an hour and quarter later from Oban.
She then left an additional hour late from Tiree’s pier after a technical failure.

Loch Bhasapol literally dappled in the sunshine today.
How inspiring was the view across the loch towards Ben Hough.
The clouds which can so quickly transform the landscape can be clearly seen.

Balevullin has several traditional homes.
Here together a thatched cottage with a felt roof adjoining.
This view is taken looking up towards a cleft in the rock on the road.

On the Moor road is a distinctive rocky outcrop.
Perched on top was a large bird with white feathers on the under side of its wings.
Some research will need to be done to try and identify what looks like a bird of prey.

When the sun shines the sea is transformed.
In a short space of time it can go from leaden
to the most amazing shades of blue.
This is one of the joys of ‘Life on Tiree’.
