Friday Islay Picture #336 - Mull and Jura

Friday Islay Picture in stencil

Don't drink and blog, they say. Well, I have to break that rule today. Earlier this evening I had a very nice steak with some nice Australian red wine (there's no wine made on Islay, so I think I'm excused). I've since moved on to the Laphroaig An Cuan Mòr I bought when I flew to Germany last week (it's a travel retail bottling). And to make matters worse the Friday Islay picture is only an Islay picture in as much as that it was taken from the Islay ferry:

This is the lighthouse at Carragh an t-Sruith on Jura with Mull in the distance, seen from the Islay ferry departing from Port Askaig. Admittedly not a view you'll get with the bare eye, this was taken with my 80-400mm lens fully extended to 400mm. The big mountain is Ben More on Mull, the only island Munro outside the Isle of Skye.

With that I'm going to say good night, have a great weekend!

Sharing and discussing. Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
