Photos: Lealt Falls and Clouds

It’s only taken me 13 years to stop at the car park for Lealt Falls and take a look. It was fairly early (before seven) and I had to it myself (except for whoever was in the tent bigger than their car that was tucked around the corner from the main car park). I’d met up with someone in Portree at six to deliver a commissioned painting, and decided to drive home ‘the long way’ as it would be quiet.

What also caught my eye were the patterns in the clouds above the Trotternish Ridge, with patches of blue and sunlight. I can’t decide whether my favourite photo is the one with the ‘bump’ in the ridgeline or where it’s smooth like the clouds.

A bit further north, the light breaking through the clouds over the bay at Staffin compelled me to stop again.

Before Lealt Falls, I also stopped for a few snaps of the Storr and loch.

And what would a trip around the north end be without at least one sheep photo?This lamb’s striped socks caught my eye.

  1. My favourite cloud photo is the smooth ridge of the “I live in a Rothko Painting” view..

    1. Definitely! There are plenty of possible spots for sitting to paint that wouldn’t be in anyone’s way, and even picnic tables at the main carpark though without a view of the falls.
