Photo prompt round-up: Clarity #writephoto


Sharing solitude
Memories made together
Flow clear in the heart
Returning and reliving
Dreamers cherish the moment


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the tiny Hebridean island of Great Bernera. The sea is as clear as glass and rich in sea creatures. The sand is soft and clean and teh beaches deserted… at least when we were there.

The island is named after the Norse Bjarnar, father of a Chieftain of Lewis, Ketil Bjarnarson, and many of the place names on the island still reflect a Viking heritage, although the most common surname today amongst the two hundred and fifty or so residents is MacDonald.

The MacDonalds here are descended from a watchman of the Clann mhic Amhlaigh, the Macaulays of Lewis, who was given the island in recompense for his services. In more recent times, Great Bernera was owned by Robin de la Lanne-Mirrlees, the author and former Rouge Dragon Pursuivant, an officer of the College of Arms, who corresponded with Ian Fleming and many of whose characteristics went into the creation of Fleming’s James Bond.

We knew none of this as we walked along the shoreline beneath a sky too bright for the time of night, simply enjoying the peace and beauty… and the ancient place we had come to see. But, more of that later as the tale of our journey progresses…
