Andrew Leggett's Islay Pictures

Islay Pictures in stencil

When I wrote about Michal Šúr's Islay (and Seychelles) pictures (who is giving a talk at the INHT tonight) I knew I would have a good intro to Andrew Leggett's Islay pictures. Simple reason that he met Michal at the Islay Show and was very impressed by Michal's pictures. But Andrew also has a few nice Islay pictures of his own:

Andrew visited Islay in mid August 2010 for a few days and posted a selection of his pictures on his flickr account. You can find the Islay pictures in the Islay set (now there's a surprise…). While I encourage you to view the whole set here are some of my favourites:

Let me start with this view of Port Ellen late in the evening with its wonderful reflections. This butterfly on a thistle might be a good candidate for the Islay Natural History Trust blog wildlife picture competition? Somehow I find this unusual perspective of the American Monument on The Oa interesting, also the wonderful colours nature has to offer. The calm scenery as well as the yellow spot of colour with the boat appeal to me (I think this is at Ardbeg). The birds on the bricks in the water look brilliant. And I think this is the photographer.

I hope you'll enjoy Andrew's pictures as well, may be let us know which ones you like in the comments?
