    Aaah - wish I could, Debra!  I will have to think hard about these beautiful snow-covered hills.  Tiree is as flat as a pancake...and I know nothing about hills, except that they look nice.   This is one of the finest CalMac shots I have seen for a VERY long time.  Back I come to look at it...super.  Yes, you know me well!  Donald
    :whistle: No excuses now Donald...you could EASILY paint this one....such a fantastic photo....Kev with his fancy camera the lucky so and so lol :crazy2:
    ....he has taken this JUST FOR YOU TO PAINT....hills are easy...it's the boat that takes the effort....you'll manage that nae bother !!!
    Debra  :cheers: :crazy2:
    By the way Kevin...Kenny the expertly trained and qualified proffessional photgrapher.....
    (lol, he'll kill me for saying that but he does have all the bits of paper and was top in class)
    .....thinks this is a top quality photo !!!

    Ah well...I must try, Debra!   :cheers: It is a truly fabulous photograph....Kevin, send this to the next issue of the CalMac Calendar - I'll give you details.  Kenny is absolutely right.  This is a stunning composition - and it is the composition that makes it utterly, utterly splendid.  Where else in the world could you see a scene like that?  Makes me feel very proud to be an islander.  Donald - a very biased Hebridean! :crazy2:  :crazy2:  :crazy2:
