Luing, one of the Scottish Slate Islands.

Post by Lynn and Paul Henni

The Isle of Luing (pronounced Ling!) is well worth a visit if you are in that neck of the woods.  A short ferry ride from the Isle of Seil (which is itself only a 40 minute drive south from Oban).

The slate beach is fascinating – a skimmer’s paradise!

The scenery more generally is quite striking.

We also found flowers growing in unusual places.

And of course, where there are sheep shots to be had, Paul will take them.

This shot makes Lynn look a bit like legendary wise woman sitting atop the slate.

This might have been the view Lynn was contemplating from up there.

Heading back to the ferry post, we spotted this rider and side-car.

Finally, a short summary of what we have on show in Edinburgh at the moment.

henni.photo Prints and Etchings at 3 locations

Currently, our prints and etchings are on display at McDonald-Greene Jewellers in Bruntsfield,  at Dundas Street Framers and in the Art Collective at 139 Princes Street.  All work is for sale and ready to take away, but please feel free just to go and have a look and tell us what you think. Nothing beats seeing a print on the wall – you get a much better idea of it than on a screen.
