'Evening shade over Beinn Eighe'

The endlessly sunny weather gives way to lovely evening strolls'
 midge free over a parched landscape. Very enjoyable but
not at all typical West Coast. Beinn Eighe rises
majestically above it all on the road to Kinlochewe.

Coton grass above the Fairy Lochs to Big Sand


Very early morning high on the hills
 above Shieldaig Bay and near the WW2  Liberator
 crash site.  All over Cotton Grass blooms where the
ground is usually marshy -  now bone dry, springy and
 perfect for wandering. Every corner of tufted peatbog
 and pretty Birch lined stream is easily accessible to explore.

Big Sand village towards the Torridons

The blog is back! And the new season  begins with
 a small painting of Big Sand beach from my favorite view point. 
Since this picture was finished last week the weather has changed
 dramatically to sun and blue skies and the beach ......a little busier.
