skye

Lucky

Amber is one of the stones that are said to bring good luck.





This is my amber bangle, made by the jeweller in my village. I thought about cropping it to get rid of the reflection, but decided to leave it.

And now I need to go and catch up with the pictures that were waiting on my computer to be posted.

Fast

I just realised that I missed one in my catch up.

This is fast, as in immovable.





The stealthy new sub, HMS Astute, ran itself onto a sandbank off Skye (yes, Skye is marked on the charts!) and was a target for anyone with a camera with a decent lens. She had to sit there until high tide to be dragged off.
