Pictures: Machir Bay

I've mentioned before that Islay has quite a few dunes and beaches, after the Strand and Ardnave I'm turning to Machir Bay today. Instead of one picture I even give you two, although they are very similar:

Machir Bay is one of my favourite beaches (and bays) on the Isle of Islay. On a sunny day the colours are amazing, especially when the waves are coming in and are breaking as they approach the beach. On a cloudy it has a certain moody yet calm feeling.

These pictures (they are actually panoramas, created from several pictures) were taken when I arrived on Islay in July 2004 for a visit with my sister. From that day I also created a QuickTime VR panorama of the view over Machir Bay. It was quite busy that day, there were at least five other people on the beach!

Still haven't got enough? OK then, it's not very big, but here's a 360° panorama of Machir Bay. Want it bigger? Here's a QuickTime VR panorama of the view over Machir Bay and Kilchoman from the crags overlooking the bay.

That will have to do for now, more some other time.
