Just back from a week shooting on the Isle of Skye

Wow, what a beautiful place to go and spend a week doing what you love! Namely, photographing what you see in the landscape. I am really pleased with what I captured so I’ve added a selection of images to my PROJECTS section. A few of my favourites moments are below.

The CleatThe Cleat and Loch Cleat, shot from on top of the Quiraing, Isle of Skye.

For this shot, I had spotted a church near where we were staying, and just behind it, I found a way down to the edge of the loch, just as I finished setting up I saw this burst of light come through the clouds at sunrise. I shot this on a 2-second exposure to get a smooth chocolate like feel on the water surface. Hope you like it.

Fairy Pools, Isle of SkyeOn our last day, we ventured up to the Fairy Pools, a short walk away from the car park. There were lots of people so I was not expecting to get anything too nice or different especially as the sun was low and almost around the back of the mountain, but when I added a polarizer to my setup I was pleased to see the blue come through. Would be even nicer later in the year when the sun hits the water in the afternoon – note to self!
