The Outer Hebrides -16:9 – Part 1
The Outer Hebrides are a chain of islands off the north west coast of Scotland on the European edge of the Atlantic ocean. The two largest islands are The Isle of Lewis which lies to the north and it’s adjoining neighbour, The Isle of Harris to the south. Although they are called islands they are in fact one land mass. Further to the south are the islands of North and South Uist, Benbecula and at the southern most tip Vatersay.
Our recent trip took us to Lewis and Harris and we would love to return and explore the other islands as well. They are quite magical and the scenery is breathtaking.
On my return home I started processing the files and discovered that the native 3:2 aspect ratio didn’t suit many of the photographs I had captured. 16:9 worked much better so I have decided to write two posts and only include pictures which conform to this format. This first post concentrates on The Isle of Lewis and in a few days time I shall post a selection of images taken on The Isle of Harris.
Thanks for reading this post and do look at for my next entry ‘The Isle of Harris’ in a few days time.
As always do click on an image to view a larger version which will open in a new window.

Stunning set of photos of a beautiful location.
Thanks very much Paul. I hope you will enjoy the Harris images in a few days time. It’s a wonderful part of the world.
Gorgeous! They call to mind the etchings of David Young Cameron, although I don’t know if he ever went to the Outer Hebrides.
Thank you. I hadn’t heard of David Young Cameron but I have just looked up his work. What a wonderful artist. Thanks again.
