Barra: A little series of images # 8

TrĂŁigh Elias obscured by marram grass in the Atlantic breeze. The farthest, faint landmass is, I think, the island of Eriskay.

A very evocative image that has "Hebridean" written all over it. Seductive colours and a well chosen speed for the windswept grass- great crop too. Super. Did you have time to take the wee ferry across to Eriskay?
You get the impression that a real hooly was blowing, a delightful image.

I can just about feel that cool breeze , Jose. Very lovely image that carries a very visceral feel for this environment. Love the point of view you chose.

A lovely image - it evokes a cool, breezy day with the taste of saltwater in the air.
Loving colours and the sense of movement in this shot Jose.

Wonderful shot. The slight blurring of the grass adds to the real time capture

I love everything about this - the composition, colours and the sense of motion in the grass. It makes me feel like I am there lying in the grass, peeking through to the beach. Perfect. A likey for me.
Okay so maybe I was a bit out yesterday, thinking it was a breeze blowing, but old age and whisky have dulled the memories of what'Wind' constitutes in this neck of the woods, great image btw,

I think most of us have the sea in our genes, Jose-Ann! It calls to me every time I see an image like this. The grasses in the foreground MAKE this photo for me!
Bleak almost, but lovely. Like the warmth of the sun on the grass and the cold of the sea
Wow ! All I can say is WOW !

The grasses turn their ears
to the call of the ocean.
