Field Notes

The dramatic coastline of the Outer Hebrides is a wonderful place for landscape photography; it’s beautiful, varied and experiences the full array of weather. Here, at Stac a' Phris on the Isle of Lewis, the drama really unfolds between the sea, sky and rocky arch. I found a wide angle lens necessary here as the viewpoint is very ‘tight’ and anything less and it’s hard to capture the full majesty of the arch with sea around it. The softness and contrast in the sky/clouds together with the foamy and rich texture in the water all juxtapose nicely with the craggy, finely detailed rock.
