Shores of Elgol by Dee-T Shores of Elgol by Dee-T
Elgol
Scotland

The rocky foreshore of Elgol makes for a huge diversity of compositions when photographing the Black Cuilllin Range in the background. During our week on the Isle of Skye, the was gloomy while on Trotternish but cleared to blue skies and still Lochs for our time around Glen Brittle and Elgol. We tried to take full advantage of the good weather knowing that it wouldn't last long!
