The story behind the image

Here’s a closer view of Ullapool’s ferry port, main attraction of the town. Here, the MV Isle of Lewis, a passenger and car ferry, has been moored, waiting for departure to Stornoway on the island of Lewis, which belongs to the Outer Hebrides. Caledonian MacBrayne, the operator of the ferry line, has a nice guide for visitors of Lewis.

For this photo, Loch Broom provides the dramatic backdrop for the large vessel which seems to be dwarfed by the use of a wide angle lens. The clouds were beginning to concern us, but we were confident that the weather would improve later in the afternoon!
