I returned to the Isle of Skye earlier in the week to get started on my Work in Progress Portfolio for Informing Contexts.  The weather has been gloomy but today was crystal clear and I decided it was time to try out my new camera, a Nikon Z7 and do some test shots and try out my ideas for my WIPP.

I decided to start by taking some shots of the Cuillin Ridge – intending to head for the Black Cuillin.  However, I was taken by the colours of the Red Cuillin and the dusting of snow that had arrived overnight.  One of my ideas for my portfolio was to take some tight shots of the Ridge to capture the ever-changing weather and light over these Hills.  These are my favourites  from this morning:

I am pleased with these shots as a starting point and will seek feedback in the webinar later today.  The Red Cuillin are less menacing than the Black Cuillin and the weather tends to be less threatening over these hills.

I set off for the Black Cuillin but when I arrived at Loch Cill Chriosd I was drawn to take some photographs of the Reeds – the subject of my last portfolio.  My portfolio was in monochrome but today I decided to shoot in colour.  Here is a selection of images from this morning:

The images from today’s shoot are very different to those of my previous portfolio and those I took in early January:

And a few days later The Black Cuillin Ridge:
