Isle of Skye Landscape photography – Fuji X-T3

Scottish Islands

I managed to hang onto my trial of the Fuji X-T3 for a second trip to the Isle of Skye! I was doing another 1-2-1 training day with a couple of ladies so brought the camera along for my time off and some quick shots to demo composition and exposure. so these images aren't anything that I spend hours on and in fact most of just grabbed images along the way. But when you have conditions like these, it is a fairly easy job to create great landscape images.

The Isle of Skye in winter can be an incredible place with fast changing light and great conditions. It often seems a gamble to go away in Scotland in the winter months as you never quite know what you will get. In my experience, whatever it is it is usually worth the gamble. On this occasion it was snowy conditions that brought amazing blue skies, snow showers and clouds with sun breaking through and the most incredible sunrises. The sunrise was so beautiful and the water was so still that I even managed a quick swim in the water at Portree to start my day off. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did taking them!
