A small yet tranquil island. The landscape is offset by corse grass and hardy brush. In the Month of may, during our visit, the island was in bloom, and the heather took on an orange - pink hue. The air itself was heady in its fragrance. We took great gulps of it each morning as we prepped our equipment for a day of shooting and exploring.
As it was rather early in the season, we where often the only ones at the coves, treading the bracing water and marvelling at the the fantoms of pristine azure waters that surrounded the island.
