Maurice Ford – Hebrides


Maurice Ford came on the Outer Hebrides Photography workshop in 2019 

Maurice, you have captured something so completely unique with this image - taken on Garry beach at sunrise. I know this part of the beach well and have yet to capture an image that is successful there let alone one that conveys the feeling of the colours, rocks, cliffs and water so well.
I absolutely love the unique perspective and the way you are just looking through and beyond the stacks and on towards the cliffs.

It seems to offer a glimpse into drama and beauty of this location without the need of a traditional wide view. It's like slicing up sections of the everything that defines that beach and putting it into one photograph. The colours are just gorgeous and that hint of green on the very lower section is how I know Garry beach - green / turquoise clear waters when then tide comes in.The eye is led into the picture gently and shown each element - layer upon layer. For me, it isn’t easy to shoot on a sunny clear day like this but you have produced an image on such a day that does the beach proud…..
