Pebble Island Vistas

2nd November 2015. Pebble Island, Falkland Islands.

.

The images show the raw, spare beauty of landscapes in the Falkland Islands.  They are all from the northern part of Pebble Island but I’m not going to try to identify specifically where for each image, sp mostly no comments.

The long thin images are panoramas combining from two to five images.  If you click on them they go to a larger than normal size – 2560px wide rather than 1024.

In general, a wild and windswept landscape with the notable absence of trees..

Some of the beaches look inviting places for a swim if the climate were different.

This is at the northern tip of the island, with some wild water and a storm bearing down.  Nearby was a beach with the original coloured pebbles that gave the island its name.  There are not many of them left now because people have taken them away.  I did take a picture but I didn’t get the depth of field right and it’s not good enough to show here.

Nearing the settlement now, the buildings are associated with the airfield.

    VERy impressive. I’d still like to see *and understand* the pebble tho. Stark is an understatement. I love the new click to enlarge you’ve done.
