Skywatch Friday: Cycling Project - glacial erratics


Somewhere along the top of Scotland (it's all getting a bit vague by this time, as I don't know this coastline and my son was busy with the hard business of cycling - and besides there aren't too many place names around) the Cycling Project came across these glacial erratics. It was the summer of glaciers for my son - in July he visited the Mont Blanc glacier in Switzerland on a geography field trip.



See other skies at the Skywatch Friday site.

  1. Thank you(r son) for making me go off and find out what a glacial erratic is.

    Looking forward to smugly pointing one out on my next big camping trip.

  2. Cool, it looks like they could start rolling down the hill at any time!

  4. Looks like that rock is about to roll down the hill, but I bet its been there for hundreds of years. Awesome shot.

    Have a great weekend.

  10. I like how the road goes off the photograph and then comes back onto the image. Also, I like how the boulders are helter skelter; but then I like rocks, boulders, seashells. Nice sky shot!

  11. Linda, I'm so happy you discovered me so I could discover you! :-) My husband and I visited Scotland about 5 years ago with my parents. We had a wonderful time touring for about 10 days... it was hard to return home so soon! You have an absolutely beautiful country.

  12. I love the first photo. The angle shot is a story by itself. Beautiful clouds.

  13. The old glaciers leave their visiting cards behind. It is rather fun to speculate on what the landscape looked like long ago.
    Nice shots both.

  18. Your son did a beautiful job with his photographs, the sky and composition of the second photograph is wonderful. I would have like to have had a geography class like his!!!!

  24. Hi,

    Just came by via Nat's blog, really like the photos.

    Will pass the links to my partner Richie, he still misses the hills in Scotland, he lived in Glasgow for 10 yrs.

    Have a good evening.
    Love,
    Herrad

  25. At the moment I can not pursue my love of cycling or my love of Scotland and these pics are about as close as I can get to the wilderness.
    Thanks for posting them, I will be thinking about that road as I dodge taxis on the Kinkerstraat on the way to the market tomorrow.
    Great photos!
