The glory of a Hebridean sunset.

 The sun was setting fast so we made our way along the beach...

 ...and over a bluebell covered hillside...

 ...to photograph the sunset over the Sound of Jura.

 The sun slowly sank into the Sound of Islay which separates

 Jura to the north and....

 Islay to the south.

We lingered long after sundown savouring the Southern Hebridean twilight until the Paps of Jura merged into the inky blackness of the night sky.

    1. Ian, you will just need to come home! I would go back there like a shot, err well perhaps not like a shot given my recent experience of being in close proximity to a man discharging a shotgun on an otherwise peaceful beach!

  2. Excellent composition with the bluebells, a very pleasing picture. They are in bloom here now also.
