As so often happens here, some of the best weather of the year is kept for autumn. For anyone taking photographs, this is a wonderful time of year, with clear air and clouds adding interest to the skies. This was sunset at Ardnamurchan Point yesterday evening, picture taken by Kilchoan Early Bird - to whom, once again, many thanks - and....
A group of about twenty swallows were swooping round the roofs of the houses by the shop - this picture is of the Ferry House. These must be migrants from the north, taking a break to replenish their reserves on the insects being blown in on the southeasterly breeze. By the time I returned they had all departed for Africa.
The leaves on almost all the trees are showing signs of decay, helped by almost continuous southerly breezes over the last few days. On some of the oaks the leaves are shrivelled and look ready to fall.
CalMac are making plenty of changes at the ferry terminal, one of which has been to re-mark the lanes for the cars waiting to board: they now read, from left to right, "Fill Lane 1", "Then Lane 2" and "Then Lane 3". That should be clear enough.
