Travel theme: Pale

Travel theme: Pale:  These photographs were taken at Arisaig on the west coast of Scotland; the pale evening sky is still lit by a sun which has only recently dipped beneath the horizon.  A version of one of these images appears in the rotating header of this blog so will be familiar to some.

If I could paint I would paint this; if I could be anywhere else right now, I would be at Arisaig……or Plockton or Applecross or Achiltibuie – I’m easy, anywhere under these skies:

    Ooh. I liked the subdued pastel palette. Quite cool.

    Interesting, these photos are very similar to my “Quiet Morning Reflection” from Iceland…

      I agree – your Iceland pictures capture that pale northern light so well.
