Monday begins with a beautiful, colourful sky
Looking south towards Jura is inspiring.
We open the curtains to this view.
For about 45 minutes the sky is like an artist’s palette.
To think this is the view over breakfast.
Porridge with a difference.
Mouse-over for captions, double-click for larger pictures.
Soon reds give way to blues.
Sky and sea transformed.
Distant Isles so clear.
Returning from our walk at Soroby Beach we stop at Balephetrish.
A favourite spot to stop and admire the Small Isles of Rum and Eigg.
And fascinatingly even Ben More on the Isle of Mull.
As we approach the equinox daylight hours get so much shorter.
All too soon the blues give way to the shades of sunset.
Another colourful palette.
Next day we draw back the curtains to yet another beautiful sunrise.
Yet again it is porridge with a breath taking view.
Who needs breakfast television?
This view is inspirational!
Today there is more cloud cover.
The breeze has a chilly edge to it.
However it is still very pleasant for walking.
It is hard to sit down to your evening meal
when the sky is being so dramatically transformed.
Looking out to the Passage of Tiree the sea is turning silvery.
Sadly no time to stop and capture the scene.
Returning home the moon is visible.
As if playing cat and mouse with the clouds.
Here on Tiree we have no trees to loose their leaves.
No trees with leaves to mark the changing seasons
But what amazing skies and seas
that take on the colours of Autumn
This is ‘Life on Tiree’.
