Weekly Photo Challenge: Awakening


From Skellig Michael.

“There has been an awakening…”

So said the first teaser for The Force Awakens.  Skellig Michael appeared in the last minutes of that movie as Ahch-To, the refuge of hermit Luke Skywalker.  The island will be forever associated with Star Wars to me.  Here are some of the “Jedi Steps” that Rey climbs, and some of the puffins that became “porgs” in The Last Jedi.

    Hello Mei-Mei, Wow! it looks like Rey was wakin’ and breakin’ rocks for a long time on Ach-to! There’s a lotta broken boulders there. And I see your “guest” made it into your shot again.

      Yes! The same girl from the “Face in the Crowd” photo! I wasn’t kidding about her being a human mountain goat 😀

    What massive rocks! They must be a nightmare to climb up. But so cool that it was used in Star Wars!

      There’s actually stairs to climb, but the stairs are really rough and uneven, too haha. All the little stones you see going across in a kind of wedge are the side of the steps.

    Oooh, I see them! I love puffins! Went on a puffin search years ago in Orkney – never saw any though.

      Aren’t they adorable? It was nesting season, so there were tons on the island! It was awesome to see. And hear, because they make a funny sound also.
