Tobermory, Isle of Mull

This remote island can only be reached via ferry. Our recent jaunt into the Scottish Highlands took us to a variety of islands, and Mull was one them. To us it appeared sparsely populated but not compared to many other Scottish islands. The largest settlement on the island, Tobermory offers a distillery, fishing, and tourism thanks to it's uniquely situated harbour. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the rapidly changing tide here at this latitude: I'm still amazed at the pace by which it rises and falls.


Wishing to travel lightly to Mull, I purposefully left behind the tripod and other lenses. I did not intend to leave behind my polarizer, and was kicking myself upon realizing I did not have it. Thus, this image differs from many of my other Flickr submissions in that it is quite simple. It is nearly straight-out-of-camera, with the exception of minor curves and saturation tweaking. Perhaps my usual long exposure addiction would have ruined this already-fine view of this peaceful village.
