Loch Ness

Location: Highland, Scotland
 
It was on a clear day when we took a short cruise on Loch Ness.

The lake is supposed to be inhabited by a prehistoric monster which remains as elusive as the Big Foot.

I stayed on top of the boat with a camera ready to shoot anything that looked suspicious in the waters to prove the skeptics wrong, but I was disappointed.

Nevertheless, the beauty and serenity of the place made up for it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

Oban Bay, Scotland

Location: Oban, Scotland
 
There are some advantages in going to a place during the off-peak tourist season. To start, there’s less crowd and better accommodations can be had. That’s what we experienced when we visited Oban, Scotland.

Hotel Room

 
Our room at the hotel was a great deal for the money. It had windows that offered a fantastic view of the bay and surrounding areas.

The above picture showing the ferry leaving port was taken late in the afternoon just before sunset settled in. It reminded me of Emily Dickinson and one of her poems. If she were here, I bet she’d be pleased and enjoy every moment of it.
 

 

They called me to the Window, for
” ‘Twas Sunset”—Some one said—
I only saw a Sapphire Farm—

And just a Single Herd—

Of Opal Cattle—feeding far
Upon so vain a Hill—
As even while I looked—dissolved—
Nor Cattle were—nor Soil—

But in their stead—a Sea—displayed—
And Ships—of such a size
As Crew of Mountains—could afford—
And Decks—to seat the skies—

This—too—the Showman rubbed away—
And when I looked again—
Nor Farm—nor Opal Herd—was there—

Nor Mediterranean—

– Emily Dickinson
