Today was an exceptional day on Islay, it was incredibly clear with lots of sunshine and very pleasant temperatures. A lovely spring day and the winter storms and gales have already been long forgotten, such is life I guess.
Due to the clear conditions I took the 400mm tele lens out and shot some distant Islay views, both from the Sanaigmore Road and across the loch, that is from Bruichladdich and Port Charlotte looking over Loch Indaal towards the central part of Islay. With some more clouds in the afternoon the patches of dark and light were nicely spread over the hills and rocks which resulted in a nice atmosphere. The gallery below has pictures all shot at 400mm and all of them are taken today. If you look closely you can identify three Islay Distilleries – Kilchoman – Bowmore and Gartbreck.
