My Illlustrated Travel Journal with Essays about Roman and Mediaeval History and some Geology

  Crossing to Mull

I took the ferry from Oban to Craignure / Mull twice. The first pics were taken on a sunny early afternoon with a stiff breeze going on. There were some drama queen clouds, but they never did any harm.

Approaching Mull


The coast of Morvern on the other sideof the Sound of Mull

The second set was taken on a late evening two days later, on the way back from the trip to Staffa and Iona. There had been a few showers during the night and the morming, and the air was much hazier, though the sea was calmer.

Mull, again

Lismore Lighthouse

The light is never the same for five minutes, a challenge but also a lot of fun for a photographer. Though none of the photos matches reality.

Next part of the journey, from Craingnure to Fionnphort can be found here.

Lovely photos, especially Kererra and Lismore lighthouse gleaming in the sun. Looking forward to more :-)
 
No, photos never do match up to the actual thing, do they? But you've still done a great job with these - what beautiful scenery.
 
Beautiful. What was the temperature like? It's been blazing hot here in the southern United States.
 
'Drama queen clouds' - love it!! Love the pics too.
 
Thank you, everyone.

Steven, I thought the temperature was nice, but I can imagine some people would have deemed it too cold. ;)

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
