Hebrides Countdown 2012...
Yes, it's that time of year again! It has felt quite strange not to have been in the Hebrides this last couple of weeks....the knowledge that the usual things are happening without us - Alasdair's lambing will be well and truly underway now, and the pub will be back open for full time summer season operations...the tourist information offices will be fully stocked with leaflets and souvenirs and will have thrown open their doors - all the things that we usually see happening.... Having said that, we're thoroughly looking forward to being there a little later in the year, and seeing lots of new things happening, no doubt!
The shot above was taken back in 2006, from Howbeg on South Uist. I love the contrast of the flat Machair I'm standing on to take the photo, with those hills beyond....we're hoping to get similarly bright, sunny days this year, too! Fingers crossed!
