Mindful photography retreat with Paul Sanders | Outer Hebrides

Retreats, workshop

Outer Hebrides landscape photography retreatJust back from a wonderful week leading the Outer Hebrides landscape photography retreat together with Paul Sanders. What an incredible week it was! The weather was very kind to us in that we were treated to all seasons every few hours - from hail storms to huge swells, rainbows and blue skies. Very typically Hebridean weather which just added to the week. These kind of weather conditions are conducive to photography because it is possible to see some incredible sights and capture some really unique images from beaches that are completely white after a hail storm, 15 foot waves showing the drama and power of the ocean, skies that change from second to second and rainbows which appear and disappear again seconds later. Everyone fully embraced the conditions and it truly added to the week on the Isle of Lewis and the Isle of Harris.

Staying at Lews Castle in Stornoway gave us the space and relaxation required after a day out in the landscape and I have to say that the castle were welcoming beyond the call of duty. I just love that islanders always made me feel so welcome.

Island Highlights included having a warming bowl of soup looking out to the expanse of Uig sands at the newly opened Uig Sands restaurant, our very special meals at the amazing Digby Chick in Stornoway and the Callanish Standing stones restaurant offering us shelter from the rain as well as beautiful homemade quiche for lunch. All in all a very successful week with everyone leaving delighted and happy and hopefully inspired and a little bit in love with the Hebrides! landscape photography workshop on outer Hebrides in the dunes at landscape photography retreat beach photography at outer hebrides workshop incredible scottish islands photography workshopcatching the last of the day on outer Hebrides photography retreat landscape photography workshop on outer Hebrides

Walking on the Isle of Harris – Ceapabhal

Yesterday afternoon I decided to walk up Ceapabhal on the Isle of Harris. I’ve been meaning to do this on a sunny day for a while, so I set off after photographing a beach wedding earlier that day. I experienced views down to turquoise seas and over Harris. Just me,...
