I photographed these boats as we waited for the ferry from the Isle of Skye to the Scottish mainland at Mallaig. The cottages in the background are actually made-up, but the real ones are something like these, but not exactly here.
Eilean Donan is a tiny island with a castle whose origins go back to the 13th century. It sits at the junction of three sea-lochs in the Scottish Highlands, the principal loch being Kyle of Lochalsh. We were there in 2017, as also was a British jet fighter that flew down the Loch at treetop altitude at maybe 800 kph, leaving everyone quivering for the next 15 minutes.
A row of poplars or something similar, with the low winter sun shining through and casting shadows across the road, with bright green farmland beyond. This is in Oakley, Hampshire, in the U.K., where our daughter and her family lives.
Not much good as a life-boat when it’s sitting on the tidal flats, which is what happens twice every day, but a local fellow told me it’s retired and now the consuming hobby of a man passionate about old wooden boats.
