Crocus (& more from Skye)

Crocus // 20 02 16

It’s rained a lot today, on and off. I’ve spent a lot of the day using Photoshop (But not editing pictures) and then as I was editing today’s shot I decided to have a look back on some of the Isle of Skye photos. I found a few that I had exported but not uploaded so I decided to upload those.

Can’t believe we’ve been back a week. It really was the most beautiful place!
Norway has got stiff competition (We’re off to Norway in July)

Day 6 – Bamburgh

Bamburgh Castle

After a lovely tea at The Mizen Head we got up for the sunrise at the beach. It was a really nice sunrise, so that was lucky – I feel like we’ve been really lucky for the entire week in terms of weather! 🙂

When we got back to the hotel we had a lovely breakfast, nom nom, and for me the last fry up of the week.
The plan was to go to Bamburgh Castle for a couple of hours before driving home; but when we got to the castle it was shut. As we were both really tired we decided to just drive straight home.

We’re home now, washing on and almost unpacked. Heating is on but the house is still warming up 🙂

Day 5 – Skye to Bamburgh

Loch Laggan dam

Today saw a almost seven hour drive from the Isle of Skye to Bamburgh. We drove West to East through the Highlands, past Edinburgh. It was a lot more wintery, and there was snow on the ground, and along the way it started to snow.

Bamburgh Castle

We arrived in Bamburgh just before sunset, and even though the tide was in I grabbed a couple of shots of the beach and the castle. I stopped because a rather large wave came in and literally soaked my up to my knees. Luckily I managed to grab my camera and tripod so they didn’t get too wet; but my Dr Martens, socks and jeans were sodden! I decided to take this as a sign and leave it there for the day.

Into our last hotel for a shower before mussels for tea. Up for sunrise to shoot the castle again, and have a little explore of said castle before returning home.
