This is when the shooting starts. It was an early wakeup call so we could get to Elgol in southern Isle of Skye for seaside photography. Rocks in the foreground, and the mighty Cuillin Hills (highest peak 993m) in the background. On this morning however, you couldn’t see the mountains for the low clouds and fog. Nevertheless, I thought it was a good morning and enjoyed shooting the waves around the rocks.
After breakfast at the hotel, we drove to Glen Brittle which would have given us a view of the Cuillins from the west, if only the clouds would have been higher. The famous Fairy Pools are here but the clouds were so low that it wasn’t worth the effort so we drove to Sligachan instead, for a north-east view of the Cuillins. I wasn’t very inspired about the direction where the first trail was leading, so I went on my own towards another direction that looked promising. Unfortunately, there were sheep fences everywhere so I couldn’t get where I wanted and ended up walking in a direction that was even less inspiring than the first one. And it’s very boggy here – everywhere – so you have to walk through a lot of mud as soon as you step outside the trail, and a lot of times even the trail disappears in the deep muck.
