It's always a gamble when you plan a visit to the misty isle, so named for very obvious reasons. I always expect mixed conditions but I wasn't quite expecting the week I had in the company of storms Malik and Corrie.
There were times when it wasn't safe to venture out, although they were rare. However, when I did venture forth, strong winds played a big part in the opportunity to make images. One afternoon on the Quiraing I was almost blown off my feet. Another day I watched while an unexpectedly strong gust rolled my 15 pound camera bag across a field whilst I clung onto my camera and tripod to stop that blowing away too.
Nonetheless, there were some breaks in the weather and mixed conditions, as everyone knows, are manna from heaven for the landscape photographer. Maybe not qute this mixed though. Below you can see a few of the images I took that week. Most were taken hand-held on high ISO as a tripod wasn't often possible. Many were taken using my trusty 70-200 f2.8 which has a lens hood long enough to keep the rain off the glass.
