Photographer's Note

Elgol Fishing

I guess this little harbour and beach of Elgol on the Isle of Skye has become the "Mecca" for budding photographers. It certainly has instant appeal and great photo potential. I would love to explore this area more than just the night/morning I had here.

My trips are not just for photography but also a holiday for Joanna my wife, so I balance things as best I can. One rough week in Scotland means two weeks in the Med etc.

Anyhow, I think this capture of Elgol is a little different in that it shows what this place is ( a fishing hamlet) the little boats that make their way along Loch Scavaig are all part of the charm. Not the best in quality maybe but worth sharing. Hopefully early next year I will upgrade to super smooth sensor.

BTW As I set this up a sea otter jumped up onto the rocks, I froze It jumped back - I missed a magic moment on camera but I still experienced the magic that is Elgol.
