The Outer Hebrides – Sound Construction?

A few months have passed since visiting The Outer Hebrides off the North West coast of Scotland.

Whilst I normally like to dive straight in and process as many images as I can soon after I return home, sometimes I think it pays to wait a while. The delay has a number of benefits but before I elaborate further, here are a few photographs depicting dereliction on the Isles of Harris and Lewis.

Wandering around Plodda Falls – a complete break from news and social media.

Recent posts of my work have featured on The Outer Hebrides – The islands of Lewis and Harris. On our way to these rather special islands we stayed in the Scottish Highlands at a place called Plodda Falls.

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.

Further to the south are the islands of North and South Uist, Benbecula and at the southern most tip Vatersay.

…. all vistas great and small. Yes, I know I have changed one of the words but I have done so for a particular reason.

This blog has been very quiet for the past month. Quite simply I have been away and taken a break from Social Media generally, including a self-imposed news blackout because it’s all just too depressing. How refreshing these decisions proved to be, but that’s a story for another day.

My wife and I have been in Scotland visiting The Outer Hebrides and staying on the Isles of Harris and Lewis, which neither of us have ever had the good fortune to experience before. These islands are stunningly beautiful and dramatic. It is almost impossible not to utter ‘wow’ as great views are likely to greet you at every turn.

Abandoned boats on the Isle of Mull

Earlier this year we visited the Isle of Mull which is part of the Inner Hebrides off the  West coast of Scotland. There were a number of boats which had long since passed by their sell by date, but they are great subjects for photography.
