I just loved this spot, the waves were a brilliant blue colour and they were crashing against the rocks, begging for long exposure treatment. Atlantic coast on the Isle of Harris, 2011
Butt of Lewis
This is the Butt of Lewis, a magnificent cliff face that is exposed to some ferocious waves. Ideally, this is worth a long exposure later in the day, but our time here was limited. North coast of the Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, 2011
Standing Stones of Callanish
The lesser known cousins of the more widely know standing stones in a certain part of southern England. These are on Lewis, in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, 2011.
Ever seen an airport on the beach? Perhaps this is the only one in the world. This aircraft was seen taxiing out to the "runway" on Barra, in the Outer Hebrides, 2011
V1 is the speed at which the airplane must take off, principally due to the lack of available runway to come to a stop. Wonder what the metrics are here> Cleared for take off from Barra Airport, 2011.
I'm say to say that the Rodel Hotel, sitting on the edge of this little harbour, has closed its doors. Such a shame, was looking forward to going back there one day. Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, 2011.
Isle of Lewis Landscape
Somewhere....between Tarbet and Stornaway. A ruthless looking landscape that has seen many troubling winters, I have no doubt. Outer Hebrides, 2011.

This is, or was, the Rodel Hotel. When I checked in 2018 to make a reservation, again, it was closed. Such a shame. Leverburgh, Isle of Lewis, 2011.
This is looking back towards the mountains that separate Lewis and Harris, and it saw a daunting drive in that weather. A ruthless looking landscape in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, 2011
One of the first magnificent views that we got as we drove north out of Tarbet to the upper Isle off Lewis. This is Loch Seaforth in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, 2011

Not sure of the name of the stream or the mountains, but this is a late afternoon view on the Isle of Lewis, in the Scottish Outer Hebrides. 2011.
I wonder what its like to live in this little cottage during the harsh winters of the Outer Hebrides. Not fun, I would guess. Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, 2011.
