I was out again at the weekend trying to get more shots of the Crofting Cultural Landscape for my Higher Photography project. This shot shows a valley above Balmacara Square just off the road to Duirinish. If you look at the foot of the valley you will see a clearly defined area that was once cultivated using lazy beds. This is now very wet and forms part of the Balmacara common grazings but at one time would have been quite productive. The distinct lines of the ridges and furrows can be clearly seen along with the boundary dykes or turf walls.
The following gallery consists of the best of the photos I took on Sunday.
I am an amateur photographer who is also a Chartered Geographer with his own part-time consultancy business and I work as an estate manager for a national conservation charity in Scotland. I am based in Lochalsh, Wester Ross, Scotland, just next to the Isle of Skye.
