This photo is placed here by way of responding to a challenge on Stuck-in-a-Book's website here. He asked for photographic representations of one's taste in books.

Good Heavens! That is a really hard assignment! I like all sorts of books for all sorts of reasons! So in order to represent that I chose this photo of a rainbow.

The photo was taken by John Douglas in the Clyde Cruising Club in 2008. It is a view looking back at Castle Duart which is in Loch Duart on the mainland of the west coast of Scotland, opposite the Isle of Skye. (The castle often appears on tins of shortbread and chocolate boxes.)

So what is a rainbow if it is not a multi-coloured entity with a pot of gold at the end?!

This is the photo* of Rockal - away out west from Ireland in the Atlantic Ocean - that I decided not to submit. (If I had to choose one word to describe my taste in books it would be "way out"!)

* taken by Barrie Waugh, Zubenubi, Clyde Cruising Club
