Skye & Mull

Isle of Skye
These images were taken in early June, maybe not a time favoured by most landscape photographers. 
I wanted to capture the wonderful quality of summer light and rich colour, on this, my first visit to the island. 
Our base was in Aird of Sleat at the most southerly point of the island.
I had researched the area and knew where I wanted to be and at what time of day. 
This meant very early 4am morning starts and one sleep over in my car- very uncomfortable! 

Isle of Mull
The landscape of Mull seemed a lot more gentle after Skye, with it's own unique endearing qualities.
Our base was just up the hill from Tobermory harbour.
Again, I'd researched the area and knew what I wanted to achieve.
However, this time I was not so ambitious, knowing how big and inaccessible the island can be. 
Mist, ship wrecks, lashing rain, gales and a little sunshine all contributed to a memorable stay.
