The Outer Hebrides – 16:9 – Part 2

Morning light over Scarista beach

A few days ago I posted a selection of images taken on The Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. You can read that post here.

Today I am posting Part 2, which features The Isle of Harris. Like the previous entry all the pictures have been cropped to 16:9 aspect ratio.

The Isle of Harris is beautiful but very different to The Isle of Lewis. It wasn’t until we traveled south to stay on Harris that the contrast between the two areas became evident. Do I have a preference? At the moment I am captivated by The Outer Hebrides in their entirety although I have yet to visit the Uists and other islands which lie further to the south, so no, I don’t have a preference. All I do feel is that these are very special islands and both my wife and I would love to return one day.

    Another excellent set of photos which convert very well to B&W. As you say there is a definite difference between the two islands which can be seen from your photos.
