Trotternish by TobiasRichter Trotternish by TobiasRichter
Isle of Skye, UK
Autumn 2012

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.

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. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

Beautiful picture! :D Though I know it was filmed in New Zealand and not the UK, for some reason I keep picturing a bunch of Hobbits, Dwarves, Human, Elf, and an old wizard running around on the top of that cliff. ;p

Oh that's not an easy question. I really enjoy my home spot Saxon Switzerland but there all many great places, like the Alps or Brittany.

Oh, ok, saw some pictures of Saxon and I clearly understand why you said it - besides the fact that it's your home spot.
