A nice surprise.

Yes. The shot I am sharing today came as a bit of a shock and a huge surprise. I was actually on my way back from the location when these hugely warm colours have pulled me over to stop again. I mean really, who wouldn’t?!

Day off walk up the Storr.

I still can’t believe we can just do a 2 hour walk on a day off and end up at the top of the Storr pretty much whenever we fancy. Today we chose a slightly different route up ¬†as to not get stuck amongst too many people on the main path. The car park gets absolutly packed in the season. When we got to the top, there was nobody else there and the views all around are hard to describe.

Best lunch time hike I one could wish for.

I love Ben Edra’s distinct shape and I always look for new locations to photograph it from. It is obviously hidden in the cloud in this shot but I know it’s there and that’s enough.

Great bleakness as well, isn’t it? Or does it scare you?

It wasn’t going well for me ¬†during the morning shoot today. I was getting frustrated and nearly launched myself from the cliff I was standing on in desperation. But then I realised that I was at the wrong location for the weather conditions. That helped my creative process and I moved off somewhere else where I was able to use the lighting that was occuring well. Then some buzzards cheered me up so I’m good. Don’t worry:-)
