Oot tae sea

Another picture from Rob Wakefield. This one is taken on the west beach of Berneray in December, looking out to see. Next stop Rockall (and if if you miss that, Greenland).


I've got a liking for Outer Hebrides beaches in the winter. Part of it is the clarity; often totally clear skies during day and night. Part of it is because you you know that it will be dark by late afternoon, in which case a roaring peat fire, whisky and some good food await back home.

And the best reason of all is probably the Northern Lights. Once seen over Berneray - especially from a beach - never forgotten, and always wished for again. Roll on the winter and the dark nights...
