I had a good week last week taking photographs and enjoyed the challenges of capturing the Rosebay Willowherb.  I had plans to return to the stands of pink flowers to take some images using a different technique.  I intended to use intentional camera movement to mimic the swaying of the stems.  However, the weather has been very variable in Skye – nothing new I hear you say – but we have been battered by heavy persistent rain and high winds.  So, for the most part, I have only ventured out with the iPhone in my pocket.

I take a brisk, long walk each day and like to record what I see along the way.  You may recall that I recorded some of the daily views from my walks during lockdown.  I thought it would be interesting to remember those spring days and look at the images I took this week to see the change in seasons, colours and weather conditions:

After enjoying the Rosebay Willowherb project, I went on a walk at Skinidin, where I had taken those images and did some quick shots of some of the other subjects I might use for next week – seed heads and the golden colours of autumn.  These are simply record shots to remind me of where to return to consider the subject more carefully, but I look forward to working on this next week with my trusty Nikon Z7.

And finally, the Image of the Week.  Along the shore where I walk and just around the corner from where I live, I pass a beach which is known as Silver Sands.  As I passed by the light sparkled on the sand and a couple walked along the water’s edge.  So, in a poor week of photography this is my Image of the Week.
