Photographer's Note

A little picture of the harbour at Portree, taken while I was being carefully studied by a Herring Gull (Larus argentatus) sitting on the wall in front of me - he didn't seem at all worried to sit just a few feet away.

Portree, with a population of around 2,500, is the largest town on the Isle of Skye. The pier at its harbour was designed by the famous civil engineer, Thomas Telford. And for those folowers of J.K. Rowling, Portree is the home of a fictional professional Quidditch team in the Harry Potter universe called the 'Pride of Portree'.

ISO 100, 1/100 sec at f/9, focal length 43mm.
