Visit to Carloway

As today was nice and sunny, I jumped on the afternoon bus to Carloway with the object of photographing the local war memorial. The bus trip, 45 miles, costs me a mere £4.40 and lasts for 2½ hours. Normally, it is 2 hours, but the bus picks up and drops off school children from two different schools. This allowed me to jump off at Carloway and photograph said memorial and a few village scenes.

On the way along, I noticed that there was quite a bit of snow and ice left in verges and in shaded locations.The first pic in the below gallery shows what was left in the shade of some trees at Garynahine junction. Below that, you'll see five images from Carloway.


  1. Whenever I look at the pictures you take locally I can certainly understand why many people don't want those wind turbines out there. It's such a beautiful place!

  2. wow! lovely pictures of those houses in the snow!
    Guido! thank you for the Merry Christmas greeting!
    Please would you come by and comment on your new years' plans, your thoughts about Haiti and Martin Luther King, etc. okey dokey?
    :) it looks miserably cold there like it is in the states! Am I right?

  3. Beautiful pictures Guido - looks like a lovely crisp day. What a difference in culture as evidenced by your being allowed to board a bus carrying school kids. If a man went near a school bus here in the states he'd most likely be detained!
