The Misty Isle up to it's name
This summer I'm bringing you a bumper edition of the Gavin Ritchie Photography Newsletter. Back in June I took a break from routine and headed North to the Isle of Skye. On my first return to the island since I was a toddler, I managed to visit all the iconic landmarks I've dreamed of seeing for years.
My first evening on the island I ventured to the beach at Elgol. From here you can enjoy one of the best views of the Cullins range. The sun was setting right behind the ridge and the row of boats in the water were the perfect thing to complete my composition.
After exploring most of the South of the island, I headed North to Neist Point to capture the sun going down at the famous lighthouse. On this particular evening only the faintest hint of light made it through the bank of cloud to the North creating a steely blue atmosphere.
Unfortunately, for most of my trip the cloud kept the sun at bay, making it difficult to capture the island looking at its best. Nevertheless, the conditions I captured on the notoriously unpredictable island more than sum up my experience of Skye.
