Storm’s End by AlisterBenn

Hi all from Iceland, we arrived last night at the start of 35 days of tours and workshops.

Before we came up, we were on the Isle of Skye for three days, just getting warmed up and looking for a new home.

It was a successful trip and typically for the west of Scotland at this time of year, we had variable weather from horizontal rain, to glorious sunsets.

I love this area for its contrasts, jagged mountains, rivers that in 24 hours went from calm, still meanders, to raging torrents – wonderful conditions to immerse in the landscape.

This is about 11 vertical images merged to pano in Lightroom CC and further processed on the laptop in Photoshop.

Fountain of Youth ? Sligachan, Isle of Skye by EuropeTrotter

How did Sligachan come to be known as the “Fountain of Youth”? The story goes that a poor Highland maiden was horribly disfigured by a clan rival to her own but then was saved by a faerie queen. The queen immersed the girl in the Sligachan River and when she emerged, she was beautiful and scarless once more.
This area is stunning. You can see the ridge of the majestic Black Cuillin with the clear waters of Sligachan river in the foreground.
