Jul 13, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: On the road

Isle of Skye, Scotland, taken on July 1, 2016

The photos from Skye keep coming because it is just such a photogenic place! Isle of Skye means “the isle of mist”, and misty it was (occasionally) when our group took a tour around the island with Stuart from Misty Isle Tours. Driving over hills and valleys and passing by little villages on the road was certainly a good way to experience this wonderful Scottish isle!

Jul 06, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Beinn na Caillich

Isle of Skye, Scotland, taken on July 1, 2016

I can’t get enough of photos from Skye and this is the third one in a row. After searching on Google Maps and checking the corresponding time that the photo was taken, I have reasons to believe that the mountains seen here are known as Beinn na Caillich, the “red hills” of the Cuillin mountain ranges. While the Black Cuillin was more majestic and dramatic, I quite liked the gentle curves of the Red Cuillin. One also wonders…why is it bald?!

Jul 05, 2016 – [Tuesday] Black & White: Fairy Pools

Isle of Skye, Scotland, taken on July 1, 2016

Skye is a photographer’s heaven and there is no shortage of good photo opportunities. The Fairy Pools are one of the most visited attractions of Skye, and while I’ll be completely honest and say I was a little underwhelmed by the actual pools themselves, the mountains that served as the backdrop were simply magnificent and awe-inspiring!
