With the aim of shooting some Scottish Landscapes in dynamic weather I started my trip to Great Britain in mid-November and traveled for about 5 weeks trough the country. My journey took me from the south coast of England via Northumberland to Scotland. In Scotland I traveled from the Isle of Skye to Caithness, Torridon and Assynt. As expected the weather conditions were very contrary (snow, sun, storm, rain). The exposed position at the Atlantic Ocean is responsible for the unpredictable weather in western Scotland. Often it's possible to experience several seasons within one day. Although it often wasn't very easy to keep my camera dry, I was rewarded with a variety of spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
CHALK CLIFFS AND NORTHUMBERLAND
The first part of my UK series shows images of the chalk cliffs in southern England, and Calais and castles in Northumberland.
ISLE OF SKYE - SCOTLAND
In the second part of my UK-series 2013, I present the images of the Isle of Skye. The fascinating hills and the impressive coastline are typical for the Scottish landscape. The weather was as expected at the end of November – very rough. During my ten-day stay there was no day without rain and storm. But in the rare minutes when the sun showed the landscape turned into a fairy tale world and I was spectacular rewarded for the long rainy waiting times.
CAITHNESS AND ASSYNT - SCOTLAND
The third part of the UK-2012 series shows the northern end of Great Britain, with its spectacular cliffs and the lonely landscape of Inverpolly Nature Reserve. On a starry night at Dunnet Head I had the chance to shot auroras for the first time. The view from the almost 100 m high cliffs to the nearby Orkney Islands and the play of colors in the sky will remain in my memory for long. In Inverpolly I was less fortunate with the weather and had only an extreme rare time seeing the impressive landscape without low-hanging rain clouds. But I will definitively return to that great place.
AN TEALLACH AND TORRIDON - SCOTLAND
In early December winter comes to northern Scotland. Ice covered the countless lakes and the frequently showers turn into snowfall. In the last part of my UK series I show the shots from Wester Ross. The photos were taken during several hikes in the spectacular mountainous regions An Teallach and Torridon.
