    Of all the exhibits at Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, this magnificent painting by Salvador Dali, "Christ of Saint John of the Cross" was the one which inspired me most of all. Displayed in a separate room of its own with subdued lighting and with seating to allow people to sit and ponder awhile, the light and colours in this painting are truly wonderful.

    This, I'm afraid, is a pretty poor photograph of it and it was also difficult to take due to the darkness of the room.

    ISO 3200, 1/25 sec at f/4, focal length 40mm.

    Another interesting grave in this little graveyard is in memory to a piper, Charles McArthur. The inscription on the horizontal stone reads, "Here lie the remains of Charles MacKarter whose fame as an honest man and remarkable piper will survive this generation for his manners were easy and regular as his music and the melody of his fingers will" - and then stops short, leaving the rest blank.

    It is said that the stone was commissioned by Charles's son, but when the son drowned in the Minch, the stonemason doing the work concluded he was unlikely to be paid, so simply stopped work at the point he had reached!

    For those interested, this was the journey of the "Boat Party" in July/August, 1970. We had arrived at Mestersvig, flew by helicopter (the blue solid line) south to the top of the Schuchert Valley, walked 40 miles or so (dotted red) to Gurreholm, picked up the boat and sailed (dotted yellow) first to Syd Kap and then to the place in the photograph.
