The Bridge to Skye

Finally, on this quick trip to Scotland, somewhere that David will probably get fed up with seeing, ie.the recently built bridge over the Kyle of Lochalsh to Skye.

As usual when we go anywhere nice the weather was awful, hence the dull sky.  The previous time we had been here the old ferry was still running across the Kyle to Kyleakin just over the water.

I hope you have enjoyed a view of Scotland this week. Just another quick peek at Renishaw Hall and Gardens at the start of next week. Have a good weekend.

Ha! At least they have got rid of the toll on the bridge- it was costing me ten pounds to go over and back! This is a nicely balanced and crisp shot Brian, with a glimpse of the Red Cuillin in the distance.
Brian Walbey: Thanks David, I'm sure this scene must be "old hat" to you, as you say at least you can cross for free these days.

I have such fond memories of that bridge (and this view), Brian, from 3 years ago when were were there. But that was long before I even knew about SC! It's a small world after all. smile
Brian Walbey: THanks Ginnie, what a shame you didn't know of David three years ago, it would have been nice to have met up with him I am sure.
Nice shot Brian...when we went you still had to pay to go across, and I could see why the locals were not impressed...cheap it was not!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, the only time we've been over was on the old ferry to Kyleakin, and then we didn't get any further.
Beautiful and well balanced composition Brian. I really enjoyed your views of Scotland! Have a good weekend too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for liking my pictures of Scotland Richard, there will be one more next week, a collage I done today.
One of my dreams is to go to Skye so I hope to see this in person some day.
Brian Walbey: I hope your dream comes true Mary, that part of Scotland is oh so beautiful, and who knows, you might get to say hello to David.
Another very fine photograph, Brian. A lovely series. This is a particularly nice composition. A place I must one day visit
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, I'm glad you enjoyed this series, several others seem to as well. I'm putting up a collage of further shots next Wednesday to finish off.

It is a great shame that this bridge was built (but I understand the econmic realities) as it is somehow hard to think of Skye as "remote" as it once was. The ferry across from Glenelg is still the finest way to the island!
Brian Walbey: Your's probably right about the effect of the bridge but I am sure the inhabitents of Skye are thankful for it now the toll has been taken off.
postcard quality shot brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Dr.A. Unfortunately there are plenty of postcards of this view for sale, all taken in the sunshine!
