The Outer Hebrides
I finally made the trip that I had waited so long for, It was in March 2020 just before lockdown and my journey began. I spent a few days in North West Scotland on the coast which was the first leg of my trip, then on to the Outer Hebrides. A stunning unspoilt island that is so relaxed topped with locations of endless beauty. Check The Hebrides link above for more pictures.
I have waited several months for the conditions to be perfect on the west coast of Lancashire over on the Fylde coast so I could capture this single boat. the image I had in mind needed a lot of elements that finally came together at the end of July 2020. A high tide which needed to coincide with sunset and be within 90 minutes of each other, very light medium to high clouds, and a wind speed of under 1 meter per second. I hope you agree Mission Accomplished.
North West Scotland
A place I have visited a handful of times and that offer some of the very best scenery in the world, as you drive up through Glencoe and Rannoch Moor Scotland from England the scenery is always breathtaking, there is usually a bigger mountain around the next corner.
