Skye - Waterfalls and Woodland Walks

Autumn is a fantastic time of year for some great scenery shots.  The colours are so varied, the light is constantly changing on Skye and this can make photography very tricky!

This stream and waterfall look dramatic with the snowy mountain tops in the background.

As we were driving past the Loch we saw this gull flying off with a piece of seaweed and wondered what he was doing?  He kept dropping it on the beach, we then realised there was a mussel attached to it which he was trying to break. After a few unsucessful attempts he flew to some nearby rocks and managed to smash it on them to get his prize.

A bit further along it started to rain again, but it did make for a nice rainbow.

After Luke twice falling in the water at the waterfalls and us running out of dry clothes for him, we decided a woodland walk might be safer option for the rest of the day! The colours are just great at this time of year.

We were hoping to see lots of birds in the woods, but only managed Blue Tits, Great Tits, Long Tailed Tits and the ever present Robin.  There were loads of different types of fungi in all different shapes, sizes and colours.
