      ran out of budget in january – there is enough material on the hard drive for ten more films… then unless I can find a way of turning it around that will be the end of that. Lots more bikini sailors eager to entertain you on youtube though.

    If you don’t like that film, you have a dead heart, and might as well be dead.


    Scotland should buy this film and use it as an ad for tourism…

    I didn’t have to wait till the end. I knew what the film was from the beginning. Sad and many thanks.

      thanks Susan,

      the song has been rattling around in my head for a few days so I thought that I would illustrate it in some way. It did not mean that much to me until I spent that time in Scotland.

      Melancholic but not moribund — got the message across that’s for sure.

    Wonderful Dylan, that’s a bit of magic, I’m going to watch it again now.
    You are an artist, do not stop!
    Thank you

    Very moving, nice to see the low tide shots, its all about the mud and sand sculptures for me. Natures art captured by an naturalist artist-sailor.

      I do like sailing close to the edge that is for sure – and I love to see the geography that is revealed at low tide

    You must have spent a lot of time in Scotland to enable you to produce this film without sight of horizontal rain and dark grey days (good edits). What you have captured is magnificent and is why I love living here. Please consider another short film but with Deacon Blue’s “Dignity” as the backing track.

      There was at least 5 mins of sunshine here today, the rest was dreich though, just film when the sun is out.

      I recognised some of the views but not the tan sails.

    Started this video on the laptop, which was connected to the telly via wireless. Looked up from the laptop screen to the big TV and… my god, the colors! A Rembrandt from start to finish, backed by the soaring melodies of a musical magician. Sublime.

    You’ve outdone yourself, Dylan.

    Many thanks Dylan – a great film and an excellent reminder of why we used to travel so far to get here in years gone by. I’m sure you’ll be back – once it gets a hold of you it doesn’t let go and you’ll find a way.

    A truly wonderful film, I am looking forward to sailing in Scotland in about 6 weeks time. An artistic masterpiece = to your lovely lowland film. Enjoy your summer sailing.
