When lockdown was announced I was looking forward to spending lots of time taking photographs but it soon became clear that in Scotland we were not allowed to travel to take our daily exercise. Furthermore, I did not feel comfortable using my professional camera and so captured images of these uncertain and quite extraordinary times with my i-Phone.
As we contemplate returning to Skye I spent some time going through my images of the three months we spent on the Island and decided that this week I would also remind my followers of the images I took within a short distance of the house on the Isle of Skye.
The day we journeyed north in mid March the weather was still very cold and the last vestiges of winter were very evident as we travelled through Glen Coe. And Skye was also in the grip of the winter season.
A few days after our arrival we travelled onto the mainland and looked back at the beautiful island we call home.
After storms and cloudy days in early April the clear and bright spring light began to return
And as spring well and truly sprung we were treated to some spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
My Image of the Week and the series of images I took under lockdown is a sunset which captured my imagination. It was taken during a rain storm and through our window. It reminds me of Turner’s colourful and chaotic sky-scapes . . .
