Just a few days ago we were on the Isle of Muck; these two signs say much about the island. The first is unpretentious and needs fixing to its post but what matters is that the food should be good, and it is (the chocolate crunch is recommended). Their dog is obviously proud:
If you look closely at this second sign there is even a tongue in cheek hint at modernity, The Green Shed offering a 24×7 service. How is this achieved – simple, never lock the door and operate an honesty box. It says much that they not only trust their own but also the visitors; it seems unlikely that the crime rate is high on this or any of the other small islands.
Of course I am just using this Photo Challenge as an excuse to post pictures from this wonderful small island that we were privileged to see on the very best of days. I don’t know what I did to deserve this good fortune but it must have been in a previous life; nothing springs to mind from this one:
Perhaps I should not have tried black and white, it was such a technicolor day, but then I started Mucking 🙂 about and came up with these; just remember the sky is deep blue, the sands white and the grass a lush green:

Beautiful photos of the island! Love the b/w images.
Many thanks and thanks for taking the time to look
It looks like a lovely place in spite of its not-so-elegant name.
Named before marketing and branding gurus existed.
Its neighbours, Rhum and Eigg, sound more inviting if not in combination 🙂
Beautiful. I like the black-and-whites, they are so evocative.
Many thanks – the black and whites worked better than I thought they would. Thanks for taking the time to to look and comment.
What an interesting island. I like the b/w photograph with the horse in it.
Thanks Mary – yes I was pleased with that – he positioned himself just right 🙂
wonderful photos. At least you started with a sign or two and I do love an honesty box.
Many thanks – so do I – we operate one at the golf club I belong to but I am not convinced everyone is as honest as they are on Muck.
I love a walk through the Muck. Beautiful.
Thanks – me too, but not when it gets between the toes 🙂
Yes I like colours, but I love these in B&W too. Great landscape and animals.
Many thanks – the very obliging animals turned up right on cue.
