Isle Of Luing. #Slate #Island #Photo www.henni.photo

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.

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.

A Visit To Burghead on the Moray Coast (2 of 2)

Following on from our post on the Burghead Harbour area, here are some shots from our wander along the Burghead Beach towards Findhorn.

There’s an extensive beach that starts just next to the harbour area, with easy access.

Along the beach are old Second World War fortifications, primarily tank traps and pill boxes (bunkers), the majority of which lean at a range of angles due their sandy foundations.

Set back from the beach on part of the range of dunes are some hardy trees that stand up to the North Sea wind blowing across them.

 Beaches and beasties in sunny Nairn.

Post by Lynn Henni

I enjoyed a short visit to the excellent Flowerburn B&B in Nairn.  There is plenty to do here – I believe the golf is excellent and the B&B hosts are very knowledgeable about the local golf courses being past holders of the Ladies’ Cup at one of the clubs.

Not being a golfer, I prefered long walks along the beautiful beach, checking for dolphins or whales or watching dingies bobbing along the Moray coast.  Unusually for me, I felt this shot needed to be in colour.

There was a bit of a breeze down at the harbour when I visited which made some interesting patterns on the sand.

I didn’t see any marine wildlife this time, but was accompanied by local 4-legged wildlife.  Betty also enjoyed the beach where she ran for miles and met up with some of her canine chums.

Other local wildlife included 2 gorgeous highland cows.  Again, I felt the vibrancy of this shaggy coat needed to be shown in colour in at least one shot.

Back to B&W – a few other angles.

Meanwhile, the other highland cow seemed to enjoy soaking up the rays.

Finally, while Betty was snoozing in her bed, we had night-time visits from this incredibly friendly and affectionate cat – it was difficult to get her to sit still long enough to take a photo.
