Here’s an image of Skye that you won’t see everyday, unless you live there and this is what makes it so brilliant, amongst other things. The Old Man of Storr is but a dark pinnacle in the background, the sheep sheltering from the coming weather stealing the show. All credit for this photo goes to Frank Heumann, who has been expressing his love and awe of Skye for over six years photographically. For any of you interested in seeing the Isle of Skye as it is, click on the link provided. For ‘absolutescotland’ and ‘kymali’ this is preparation for the day in the hopefully near future when you go there. Feast your eyes on Frank’s incredible images and then tell me you are not in love with this island.
