Scotland 2008 Part XXXVI: My Last Session with R_ in Scotland

Digital original, 3 frame stitch
On our drive down from the highlands, R_ and I came across this wonderful bridge; as pleasant as the weather looks in this image, this was just a window of sun in a day of intermittent rain, which apparently is typical for Scotland.

Scotland is littered with rhododendrons, which many view as a weed; it is hard to deny how pretty the bushes are however, especially when in full bloom.

This was the last image of R_ made during my 2008 Scottish visit. I stopped here because the island besides the highway was the ancestral burying grounds of the McNab clan, and I wished to see it; McNab's Island is a major element of the landscape of Halifax Harbour, and I though it'd be interesting to learn more of the family it was named after.

It was only when I learned you had to ask for a key, and lock the gate behind you in order to see the burying ground, that I realized it would be a great place for some final image so of R_, before she flew back home.
