Eigg and Rum evening light
The two islands of Eigg and Rum are the nearest of the Hebrides seen from the mainland at Morar. The nearer of the pair, Eigg, appears as an even table of land and the larger, Rum, a jagged crown. The falling of the tide coincided with the last of the day’s light, and a partial moon, to create an unusual harmony of colour. Such moments of transition are able to produce the most surprising effects of light and colour, and the familiar can become transformed and remarkable.
