WB0001 - Caliach Point, Isle of Mull, Argyll and Bute, Scotland

August 2012 - I was on a trip to Ardnamurchan Lighthouse, the furthest West point of mainland Scotland. A beautiful Summer day. The trip is long on narrow roads and although it looks wild enough, it is proportionally highly inhabited. The highlight of the trip is really the Lighthouse and its onlook towards the Scottish isles and the Atlantic sea.

After the usual scouting and photography, I sat down to look at the landscape and try to make some sense of the place without a map. As I understand it, the Vikings were very familiar with the location, sailing regularly to Loch Sunart and Loch Linnhe with their cargo, both to the left of the photograph. It is truly beautiful, especially on a nice day, but I needed a foreground interest for a photograph. That's when the sailboat kindly assumed the position.
