|The Fairy Glen, Skye ©Karla Hall|
Here is a photo I took of a magical place known as the Fairy Glen on the Isle of Skye off the coast of Scotland. Ian took me there the last time I was across. He is a very long suffering muggle and just sort of smiled at me as I exclaimed over every new thing I discovered on my second trip to Scotland...fairy bridges, fairy glens, ferry boats (very exciting for a Prairie girl, let me tell you).
To be honest, he was as fascinated as I was by the site of this unusual place. Its hard to tell from the photo, but all those ridges on the hillside are in miniature..you are driving a long the road, come over the crest of a hill and suddenly you are in this amazing landscape all in miniature! It is a natural phenomenon- I don't know what caused it, but it is not man made- you can see why the locals named it fairy glen, and why legends of the Fae still abound on the misty Isle of Skye.
NOTE: If you are finding this scene eerily familiar, it might just be because scenes from the movie Stardust were filmed in almost this exact location;-)
Here is a Tabblo of some of the other photos I took when I was in that part of the country...
