The last day of June started wet and ended wet but we did get a little spell of decent weather around lunchtime. A couple of things I noticed this week were the number of wild rose bushes in flower along the roadsides, which inspired the above photo; and the amazingly bright aqua-marine colour of the sea in Broadford bay and around the coast off the Balmacara Estate. I popped down to Port an Eorna to try and get a few shots of the sea and spotted this fantastic clinker built boat which offered a few nice options for some shots. The tide was well out, allowing me to get onto the island which is usually offshore and I got the panorama from there. Some of these are nice in colour but I like the crisp contrasty b&w shots of the boat.
