Photo of the Week
This week brought the beginning of my festive holiday and I have been desperate to get out with my camera. The weather has been less than perfect to put it mildly, but this morning I headed to the Sleat Peninsula on Skye, amid dire warnings of strong winds and heavy rain. I experienced both, but in between the rainy squalls I had some good light, making for interesting compositions.
This image, looking north up the Sound of Sleat, captures the dramatic light beautifully, with low sunlight highlighting the Gealic College at Sabhal Mor Ostaig on the left, offset against the grim cloudy sky. The pink bouy in the sea acts as a colourful counterpoint to the college, and in the distance faint light on Beinn Sgritheall, above Loch Hourn, adds to the drama of the scene.
