While driving back from a visit to Tarbert by the desolate Carradale road, we chanced on this scene. No one was around and so it was impossible to know if it was deliberate or spontaneous? I took 5 to 10 minutes photographing this with the car stationary on the single track road and no one passed by! That’s desolate. The water beyond is Kilbrannan Sound which divides the Mull of Kintyre (where we were) from the isle of Arran.
Actually, this might have been an interesting option for the recent tree round in the APOY contest!
Nice sky, apparently these are deliberate fires and you need a licence/permit to do them and there is only about a two week window for the fires.
