The Islands of Lewis, Harris and Scalpay... in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides are intriguing to say the least. During my brief visit to these fairly Isolated Islands I was often completely enveloped in swirling mist and drizzling rain. It only added to the enchantment of the scenery. I had always thought that I would see these places in weather like this, so despite the time of year when technically it should be summer, the mist and fog persisted, even if it was quite warmish in temperature. As I drove around the Islands, places and scenes would literally pop out of the mist and sometimes it would clear away and a tiny amount of sunlight would appear, but so tantalizingly brief. I had at the top of my list the Standing Stones of Callanish and arrived in the late afternoon with clouds and some dramatic weather…great for what I wanted to photograph, and so I happily walked around all three locations with the threat of rain and a blustery wind whistling across the heather clad moors.
