Peace and Tranquility: A Study in Blue

with a little bit of red.

I can't make up my mind whether the beautiful weather yesterday and today with sun and blue skies intermingled with amazing high clouds giving an almost surreal effect at times.  It's been very warm too (by Hebridean standards).

  1. I love that milkiness and the way you have placed the boat to the left of centre. It is heading across the picture - the rest of its journey still to come. So peaceful.

    1. YP on the rare occasions that The Minch is so calm it's peacefulness is almost overwhelming.

  2. This is a superb image.
    I bet it is a long time since the beam trawler had such a peaceful time.

  8. Lovely picture. Wonderful weather at the moment. Did you see that amazing sunset last night? To live on the Hebrides during weather like this is just "magic."

    1. I did see the sunset Pat. The few days each year that we get like this almost make one forget the months of 'other' weather we can sometimes get.

    1. Meike I'm trying to think of a meaning for your new word. I have a feeling that it's going to figure in my vocabulary one way or another in the future.

    1. You know, Virginia, I've been re-viewing and moving my pictures around this last week and I have far too many pics and far too few walls.

  13. Just catching up a bit. And I must say that those strips of different coloured blue look as if they were cut out and gummed across the horizon. Most odd yet very beautiful too.

    1. Thank you Jenny. One advantage of living with that view is that there are as many different views as there are hours in a day and days in a year.
