Machir Bay, Islay
I had a weekend over on Islay recently, the weather was not great but at least it stayed dry, the whisky was excellent too.
This is Machir bay on the west coast, most of the bay is behind me, this is looking north. The GU in the image is another photographer and I waited till he got where I wanted him in the frame before taking this.
With Islay having 8 working distilleries and still some available from Port charlotte and Port Ellen you are never far away from a dram, the nearest one to Machir Bay is Kilchoman which is also the newest and the only one not right beside the sea.

I love this one Peter, simple but ohh so effective.
The zig zag wave leading the eye past the lone GU, who looks diminutive against the rolling hills, towards the house at the other side.
Well done Peter.

A smashing shot Peter. You waited until just the right time to capture the silhouette of the man in the shot & also capturing the tide with the waves as they zig zag along to the waters edge & the house up on the hillside. Well taken.

I can but agree with the others here Peter but I seem to be the only one that thinks it needs about a one degree acw to get things level. A fine shot nonetheless.

Late to this. I do agree with Keith about the rotation. Even so, it is a delightfully simple scene and shows what I love about the Scottish isles. I like the toning in the sky.

I like the man in this, and think it's great that he's in black too which makes a great reflection and stark contrast and against all those misty greys and browns. It's smashing Peter
