A very moody shot of  part of the Trotternish Ridge on the Isle of Skye.

Getting to the Isle of Skye is fairly straight forward when living in the central belt. Granted it can be 5 or 6 hours journey time but it is 5 or 6 hours through some of Scotland’s most stunning landscapes it may take you even longer if you make several stops along the way. From start to finish it’s a treat for the eyes and the soul.


Skye has so many view points or tourist sights it’s impossible to see them all in a week or even 2. One of my favourite spots is the Trotternish Ridge which lies in the north east of the island. A 30km landslip running the along the peninsula from Flodigarry to the south at Bearreraig River.

What I love about this island is the light it is absolutely stunning and different everytime I visit. I have my favourite months/seasons I prefer to capture the landscape amidst the drama of the sometimes harsh weather conditions, ok i don’t really like getting to wet and prefer not to get blown off a cliff edge but at least clouds with definitions and breaks for the light to get through. I processed the above pic in black and white as I feel the drama is more intense and final with the contrasting sky and foreground.
