Harris in May
« on: August 29, 2017, 07:15:20 PM »
I done an Island hop back at the start of May and had the best weather we've had this year during the 5 day trip. Not great for photography but great for wildcamping and enjoying the almost deserted beaches of the Outer Hebrides. Here's a few pics from our time on Harris.

The last day before going for the ferry home we had some clouds. Traigh Iar or (Borve beach)

Luskentyre sunset. The beach is known as Luskentyre by most but this section is actually called Rosamol.

You have a great eye for leading lines taking the eye into the image and, with such a variety, I cannot choose a favourite.  If you pushed me, it would be the first one of the second set....john

I echo what Chappo said and these are stunning. What a wonderful solitary place.

I AGREE WITH BOTH!!!

Yet another demonstration of "How it should be done" by Chris!
There are people who actually think LENS stabilization is better than sensor shifting!

Thanks very much everyone. Harris is such a stunning wee part of the island (Harris and Lewis) with such amazing variety on offer.
For me composition/ lead in lines and the light are the most important aspects of a decent landscape image. I can't control the light mother nature serves up so i try hard to find decent compositions with strong shapes or lead in lines and do the best with the light that's available at the time.
Sometime's it doesn't always work.

Shame about the slightly squint horizon on a couple of them :cry:

Great set as always Chris.

For me it's the first of the first set - you've transformed a simple patch of dune into a thing of beauty :)

The touch of motion blur on the grass from the longer exposure is just right.

Thank you very much. That was the intention with the dune shot. I have been trying for the fine art look/ feel to images and it's harder than i thought it would be. I think i'm slowly getting there, however the whole fine art thing is open to interpretation.

Thanks Dave. Have you completed your move North yet?
The outer Hebrides are amazing and well worth visiting if you have the chance
