The beauty of Mull.

Something a little different from me and certainly not to the standards of some of the landscapes I've seen here, a few images taken on the Isle of Mull during June, it's a beautiful place.

Re: The beauty of Mull.

Nothing wrong with these; I would have been proud of any of them. I would have cropped a little bit of the mucky seaweed off the bottom of #1 as I think it detracts (and maybe add a little saturation). The others do not need tweaking and my personal preference is #4 - a fine wide angle.

Re: The beauty of Mull.

Always wanted to go to Shetland and Orkney. Probably never going to happen now (the power of veto!) but I always like wild places. Perhaps you have some more to post?

Re: The beauty of Mull.

Number 2 looks like Loch na Keal with Gribin basalt cliffs on the left and the island Eorsa on the right. (Not sure about the spelling).

Under Gribin cliffs is a huge rock. It's said that a honeymoon couple spent their first night in a cottage at the foot of the cliff, and during the night a thunderstorm dislodged the rock, which crashed down on the cottage, flattening it. If it's true, the cottage and couple's remains are still under it!

For our Australian friends, if you travel to the right for a mile or so, you come to the mausoleum of Lachlan Macquarie - said to be the 'Father of Australia', who was born on the nearby island of Ulva. The mausoleum and grounds are maintained by the National Trust of New South Wales.

Mull is a very beautiful island, that thankfully is not as popular as Skye. I've camped on Mull several times.

Thanks for your positive feedback, much appreciated.

I'll look at #1 again.

Well spotted Jim, I believe you're correct.

Thanks for the additional information, I'll take a closer look at the cliffs when I'm there next.

Mull is a lovely island and the weather was unusually warm for there, it reached 28c, this resulted in very active Clegs, I had a lot of bites while trying to photograph wildlife.

I don't think I have any more images of Mull from this trip Keith, I'll check though.

Like you, I like wild places and hope to continue to visit them, fortunately my wife prefers to accompany me rather than veto.

I may have some images taken in the Cairngorms earlier this year, I'll see if any are worth looking at and I'll post them if they are.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Re: The beauty of Mull.

Looking at the photos again, it looks like you've got the island of Staffa on the last one. It's on the horizon in the middle. It's well worth a visit. I've camped there for a couple of nights some years ago. It was good to enter Fingall's Cave on my own when the day trippers had gone, but it was a bit unnerving in the cave on the slippery wet basalt rocks, with 60ft of surging water off the edge!

A very atmospheric set. I love the last one with the rolling green grass and the islands looking tiny in the vast blue sea. And imagining what it would be like on a stormy day in January!

I think you're correct Jim.

We had intended to visit Staffa on this trip however, I read that the walkway had been damaged by Winter storms making the cave inaccessible, we'll visit there on the next trip.
