Hello Dale - Quite different weather to when I was in Elgol last year, it looks so idyllic under a blue sky. A very attractive composition and a great reminder of a very special holiday. TFS Rosemary
PS Yes the school is in a great position, if I attended it I would just stare out of the window all day!

A very pleasant view of the Highland coast
Very well composed with the little white house, the sinuous road, the fence at right and the hills at the BG
Not a slight magenta cast in the image, I wonder !?

You lucky fellow, having a trip to Skye - and it looks as though the weather was very favourable when you were there too! Did you go for a boat trip to Loch Coruisk? - I'd love to do that as Loch Coruisk is supposed to be an incredibly beautiful place and photographs of it quite often feature in Scottish calendars and suchlike.
This is a beautiful shot, well composed and with the little whitewashed schoolhouse perfectly placed in the frame and nicely balanced by the mountain and the other building up the hill. The road makes an excellent "lead-in" line to the composition too, drawing the viewer toward the school.
Lovely colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

i've been to Sky and your pic shows this beautiful island very well. Clear and with fine colours.

Teaching in such beautiful surroundings must be a dayly delight, and as for children, they must enjoy coming to school. You composed a very fine landscape photograph with some nice elements that provide a good balance to the image. The peaceful winding road draws the viewer in and takes him down to the school below. The white cottage simply shines against its green and blue surroundings. A great view and an attractive photo as well.

This one jumped out at me from your recent gallery. Looks a little like Tasmania. Good sharpness & the winding road adds good lead in lines. I live the deep blue colour of the sea. The jagged bg peak forms a good focal point. Tfs!

Good evening Dale,
We did not travel to this side of the isle-of-Skye, but knew right away and recognize the typical landscape.
An unusual bright summer day which you taken full advantage of the best light. Wond4rfil bay and mountains scenery.
My best regards,
