Dusk near Ellenabeich, Seil

Dusk near Ellenabeich, Seil - Landscapes and Lochs
One of the Slate Islands, Seil is located on the east side of the Firth of Lorn, southwest of Oban.

Seil has been linked to the Scottish mainland since 1792 when the Clachan Bridge was built by engineer Robert Mylne - also known as the 'Bridge Over the Atlantic'.

At the height of the slate industry in the 1870s the combined output of the quarry at Elleneabeich and those on Easedale Island filled ten steamers each week.

I took this long after the sun had gone down and just before the light faded completely. At this time a long exposure was inevitable but this was in my plan anyway to help emphasise the bold shape in the foreground.
