Some more photos to spark the imagination.
Scenery surrounding the site of the massacre at Glen Coe. (I have a special interest in that event, as it was some of my ancestors who perpetrated it.) The view just screams Tolkienesque fantasy to me - empty, barren and wild.
The Standing Stones of Stenness in the Orkney Isles. Clearly a portal to another world.
A scene from Matsushima in North-Eastern Japan, near my wife's home town. Who are those people in that boat, and what are they doing? Are they smugglers? Assassins disposing of a body? Wanted men looking for somewhere to hide?
