Scotland Revisited #5

After our visit to Sorbie Tower, we crossed the peninsula to its Western side and stayed awhile in the tiny village of Portwilliam. We’d hoped to get something to eat there, but everywhere seemed to be closed.

The tiny harbour seemed quite pretty though, so we wandered around while I took photographs and my wife waited patiently until I’d got the shots that I wanted.

I quite liked the reflections of this boat and of the buildings above and behind the harbour wall.

We left Portwilliam, hungry, and decided to head back to our hotel in Newton Stewart. On the way back the road was quite close to the pebbly beach at Luce Bay.

We parked the car just off the road and wandered down to the sea edge. My wife wanted to use her smartphone to photograph a rock that was poking its head out of the water. I took the opportunity to snap her as she did so.

As we walked along the beach I decided to photograph this seaweed whose bright colours contrasted nicely against the pebbles.

Before we left the beach to get some food there was time for a final shot looking Northwards along the seaweed strewn beach.

I leave you today with another look at the boat whose photo I’ve included higher in this post.

EXIF data were: 1/250 secs @ f/4.5 and 32.1 mm. The ISO was 160.
