After the lunchtime cèilidh had finished at the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre in Judique, I drove back to Glencoe Mills for more photos, as the sunny breaks continued in the afternoon. Photo #1 was taken in Glencoe Mills from the Glencoe Road looking a bit south of east at the MacKinnon farm in Upper Glencoe, a very distinctive and useful landmark when one attempts to orient oneself in the area. The stand of trees on the ridge about a quarter of the way in from the left edge of the photo was left when the area to its right and behind was logged; it now is a salient marker for the summit of the Churchview Road, from which superb views of the area are to be had on a clear day, as discussed earlier in this essay.
Photo #2 looks further south of east towards the ridge in Upper Glencoe, overlapping photo #1 on the right. Distance has mottled the colours along that ridge, but those in the foreground give a pretty good idea of what the trees there look like up close.
Photo #3 was taken from the MacKinnon Road, looking south towards the same ridge seen in photo #2, which now, alas, is no longer lit up by the sun. I stopped here because of the bright reds seen on the trees in the foreground on both sides of the road.
Photo #4 is a view of one of the numerous red trees where I stopped; no question whatsoever about its redness!
Photo #5 is a close-up view of the leaves on another of the red trees; in several states of change, from the dark green chlorophyll of the uppermost leaves at the right to the bright reds of those in the centre, with an admixture of oranges and yellows and shades in between, they were gleaming under the rays of one of the sunny breaks that came and went with such speed this afternoon.
