You'll find these surreal looking outcrops up the road a wee bit from the Auld Yin of Haw-U-Jimmy (on the northern shores of Caledonia). Legend has it that when Dali first set eyes on them he remarked that "God is indeed a Surrealist". Picasso, whom he dragged along, hugged his ever-present muse for warmth, gobbed an oyster his cold had cultivated onto a nearby moss covered boulder, and begrudgingly conceded that the one that looked like a bird's neck, had an Art Deco-ish feel about it, and added, "Can we get back to the Inn now, before my cajones drop off".

I think I would concentrate on the liths. Tighten in and show lots of sky above them.

Absolutely staggering, especially with your prosaic commentary. Don't loose the sky, but extend a little towards the sides to give it a wide-screen effect. Then post it large!

It's that fine Scot blood. I have a lot of Scot ancestry, plus Dutch, Brit, Welsh, and German. Unfortunately, it has all combined to make me incredibly stubborn, but not nearly as creative...

heh heh; win win situation if those dastardly Spaniards don't turn up as party poopers on Sunday; your endorphins should be dancing a merry jig and blasting the night away on their vuvuzelas.
