    The Collie and MacKenzie Sculpture, Skye

    I haven't been out and about much but the sun came out so made the most of taking a look at the sculpture that was put up recently to commemorate Norman Collie and John MacKenzie who were the first climbers of many routes in the Cuillin hills of Skye.

    There is potential for some dramatic shots using the landscape and suitable light and conditions. I just wanted to get a good shot of the figures and nothing else so blue sky was a good back drop.

        Excellent shot. Taken looking up at the sculptures adds impact.

            It's at Sligachan, a short walk from the car park and the bridge everyone takes pictures from.

                  That is a great photo, a nice clear sky background and two very nice sculptures.
