Sunny island hop
« on: August 14, 2017, 09:49:28 PM »
I done an Island hop through the Outer Hebrides back in May and had some stunning weather, well for the Scottish Islands at least. Not a cloud in the sky almost for the entire trip until the last day before catching the ferry for home.

 A few snaps from the Isle of Barra, Vatersay and Bernaray

Have many more but the blue skies were more for enjoying than photography.

First nights sunset on the Isle of Barra after 8-9hrs travelling


Stunning beach on the Isle of Vatersay


Subtle sunset from Berneray looking out across the Minch to the Isle of Skye


From the left hand side of the rocks in previous image but looking towards Harris as the sun goes down behind me

First is beautiful Chris... thumbs up.

Framing that creates interest from front to back. Very nice colors, a leading line, rule of thirds, and geometric shapes off center.

Nicely done!

I agree, the rest were just touristy snaps and archive shots for planning a return visit. We moan about the weather but blue skies and nothing but sunshine are not my idea of good photography weather. Was a great trip however.

The first is superb, the low sun picks out the textures in the sand very well, lovely warm tones and golden orange colours in the sky.

Yes the first is very good. These photos show that clouds or bad weather can really make a photo. I guess that's why they make weather proof cameras.

I think the second one would work well in Mono where you can fiddle with what is white and what is black.  As it is, the sand dominates but in mono you can darken this...john
