During this workshop we will photograph some of the most spectacular landscape scenery in the British Isles, making use of the best light of the day around sunrise and sunset whenever possible. The trip will include Glencoe, Eilean Donan Castle, The Isle of Skye and the Isles of Harris and Lewis. We will cover a variety of subjects including dramatic coastal scenes, tranquil sandy beaches, mountain landscapes, standing stones, abandoned crofts, castles and much more. Image critique sessions can be carried out and image processing techniques demonstrated during periods of poor weather. The Hebrides are my favourite location for landscape photography in the UK as they are a unique landscape that can be productive in just about any weather!
