Salt Sea Setting
This photo could come from anywhere in the world, but it does have something slightly different. It is, in fact, of a church belonging to the Latter Day Saints - or Mormons as they are usually called. A suburb of Salt Lake City, perhaps? No - it's close to the edge of the natural harbour of Stornoway. One would have thought that this urban area, the largest in the Western Isles with a population of around 9000, has sufficient places of worship - some 15 or so - but in 1999 this American religious organisation 'came to town'.
