I think this is the last rest area heading south on I-5 in Washington State. I took some other pictures in the nearby woods, but liked this one on the back side of the rest area the best, better light and shadow, plus the stuff in the background came out pretty cool.
Maybe this would make a nice backdrop for a scene in a Broadway play, that's what it reminds me of. I saw Brigadoon in 1980 in New York City at the Majestic Theater. I was in the Coast Guard then and got hooked on Broadway and Off-Broadway plays, Whenever my ship was in port, I'd go to Times Square and see a play. In two and a half years I saw more than two dozen plays.
I finally found this photo again. It was taken long ago when Paradise Lost was still there....

Really, it's Kinlochleven (Ceann Loch Lìobhann in Gaelic) in the Scottish Highlands but if you have a "must visit" travel list, put this tiny village on the list. It's surrounded by such beauty and some of the scenes in Harry Potter where filmed very near here.

While in Scotland, I got to view the Bridge over the River Doon. It was a magical moment reminding me of all the dreams that I still dream.

Loch Broom Scotland. That's all that I'm sure of. Anyone identify it more closely?
I was out for an early morning bike ride the other day, and thought it a shame not to snap this. Wishing a happy weekend & lovely light to all Flickr friends & followers.

Another shot from our Christmas stay in Wales. Reminds me of the film Brigadoon:-)
Recovery disks turned up Monday but unfortunately I had no success with them. Techie guy reckons my new hard drive is a duff one:-( Engineer is coming out on Friday to hopefully fix it, so we are still without our home computer - boo hoo. Mind you yesterday I would have found it difficult to focus on anything after a very 'merry' New Year's Eve party - lol. Spent the day vegging on the sofa watching TV.
Bracketing the rhetorical and metaphysical aspects [mythical village] -- even to this day some believe there could be a Brigadoon out there somewhere .... out there somewhere sleeping beneath the fog just beyond the outer-most boundaries of perception ....

Well, I'm a long way from Scotland, but it seems like the mystical village might appear in these misty mountains bordering Los Angeles.
Brig O'Doon, Alloway

Brig O'Doon, Alloway
A late mediaeval single-arch bridge on the south side of Alloway, South Ayrshire, the Brig o' Doon was made famous in the poem Tam o' Shanter by Robert Burns (1759-96). Rebuilt in the 18th century, it crosses the River Doon near the Burns Monument and is now managed as part of the Burns National Heritage Park. The bridge gave its name to the Broadway musical, Brigadoon, by Lerner and Loewe which opened in 1947 and went on to become a successful Hollywood film (1954).

The Phantom Cottage.
Just outside Islington is a mystery which defies logic and it concerns a 'Brigadoon' type cottage. A woman moved into the district and decided to get acquainted with her surroundings and so she took to walking the lanes. One day she spotted, through some trees, the most charming country cottage she had ever seen, for ages she stood admiring the building. When she returned to the village she met the man who owned the land on which the cottage stood and took the opportunity to express her admiration of his cottage. The perplexed landowner explained that he didn't own such a property and all that stood on his land was trees. The woman was insistent she had seen the building and so the next evening both she and the landowner returned to the spot. When they arrived, no matter how hard the woman searched she could find no charming cottage - just trees.
A few years later, a new bungalow was built near to the spot where the woman had seen the cottage. Once again the owner of the new bungalow met the land owner and she too inquired as to who he neighbour was that lived in the charming cottage. She also asked how one got to the dwelling because despite a frantic search she could find no entrance to it. Again the landowner had to explain that there was no such cottage on his land just trees.
A short while after this incident an Ordnance Surveyor was in the area and noticed the cottage from afar and the fact that it was not marked on his map. So he decided go down and get its exact location in order to include it on the next map print. When he arrived at the spot, much to his frustration he could find no trace of the cottage he had previously seen. A villager passed by so the surveyor inquired as to the location of the cottage only to be told that they had seen it once but they too could never find it again.
Much PP has been done to this...too much to list.

3642 blasts south through Exeter Station with "The Southern Highlander" special from Sydney to Bundanoon for "Bundanoon is Brigadoon", an annual festival. Diesels 44211 and 4520 were assisting in the rear.
I saw the rain-dirty valley, you saw Brigadoon. It could have been made for this. I was climbing in the Kilpatrick Hills with Toezi and the descent showed Glasgow in a stunning misty light.
Looking towards Akaroa, day two of my friends visit from London I took them over the Port hills to Akaroa. We had such a beautiful day and they enjoyed the trip. November 2, 2013 New Zealand.
Banks Peninsula is situated in about the middle of the east coast of the South Island on the margin of the Canterbury Plains. It is approximately 450 sq. miles in area and its highest point is Herbert Peak, 3,014 ft. It comprises two extinct volcanoes which were active less than half a million years ago. Their craters have subsequently been enlarged to many times their original size by stream erosion; they were then invaded by the sea during the postglacial world-wide rise in sea level beginning about 15,000 years ago. They now form the harbours of Lyttelton and Akaroa. Originally Banks Peninsula was an island, but it became tied to the Canterbury Plains at some late stage in geological history when the growing alluvial plain reached its base.
Akaroa is the larger volcano and probably reached a height of over 4,500 ft. Estimates of its original height are uncertain, since they cannot be based solely on the projection of existing lava slopes upwards for the reason that volcanoes of this type often have domed profiles with a falling off in gradient towards their tops. The flows consist mostly of basalt and andesite, and ash beds are not very common. Thick hard lava flows, suitable for quarry sites, are surprisingly hard to find. Dykes, vertical walls of volcanic rock pushed up fissures from below, are common and form prominent ridges in places. In the case of Lyttelton Volcano their radical arrangement centres on Quail Island, which, therefore, is thought to be near the site of the original vent. The original vent for Akaroa Volcano is considered to be near Onawe Peninsula. Because the volcanoes are situated sufficiently close to one another there is a zone of intermingling of their lava flows several miles wide, hence the impossibility of saying from which volcano the various flows originated. At a fairly late stage in the geological history of these volcanoes, when the topography was similar to that of the present day, lava was erupted from near Herbert Peak and flowed down the southern slopes of Lyttelton Harbour to form the prominent spur on which Diamond Harbour now stands. The lower slopes of the peninsula are mantled with a yellow, wind-blown silt, called loess, which was blown by the norwesters during the most recent ice advances from the wide beds of rivers such as the Waimakariri. An alternative theory is that the loess originated from sand banks out to sea. During the lowered sea level periods of the ice ages these became land and the silt was then blown inland by the prevailing easterlies. Moa bones, as well as gizzard stones of these and smaller birds, are common in the loess, which is now used quite extensively for brick and pipe manufacture.
Banks Peninsula has a somewhat more salubrious climate than Canterbury Plains, with a higher rainfall and fewer frosts, particularly on the lower slopes. Snow is common on the highest slopes during the winter months and often lies for several weeks on the tops, although the thickness is not great.

The "Brigadoon Bed and Breakfast", home of gourmet breakfasts and gourmet evening desserts, was "our" home for five days in Mackinaw City. The original section (with Victorian-style tower) was built in the 1890s. The wing to the left was added much later.

PUYCELSI, FRANCE - JULY 2014: The fortified village of Puycelsi watches over Grésigne Forest from the top of a rocky plateau overlooking the Vère valley. 14C and 15C houses made of stone, wood and brick are revealed behind more than 800 m of ramparts.
