  • Scarasta Rivulets

    Open and exposed to the wild and windy Atlantic, Traigh Scarasta is renowned for huge waves breaking on its orange sands. The waves are also unpredictable and we quickly practiced the sport of “Dodge Wave”, always on the look-out for the next big breaker to threaten man-and-gear!. Even so, this was my favourite beach of our few October days on Harris, with drama and compositions a plenty. The orange sand seemed to glow with the dark and broody sky and dark silhouette of Ceapabhal on the horizon .Location: Traigh Scarasta, Isle of Harris, Scotland Catalogue Reference: A-1710-0298Copyright © 2017 Phil Corley

Even so, this was my favourite beach of our few October days on Harris, with drama and compositions a plenty. On our second visit, we had one of the rare breaks in the weather allowing for a brief few minutes, the last light of a sunset to flood over the top of Ceapabhal sitting ominously on the horizon .Location: Traigh Scarasta, Isle of Harris, Scotland Catalogue Reference: A-1710-0246Copyright © 2017 Phil Corley

  • Seilebost Rocks

    The weather whilst we were on Harris was generally heavy rain, strong to gale force winds and a few dry breaks; however I felt the conditions were perfect! The white beaches and blue/green seas glow when the sky is full of dark rain-heavy clouds. Late in the afternoon, I found this wonderful curve of rocks to offset the turquoise sea and dark clouds (indicating the next soaking wasn’t far away!

  • Glowing Seas

    It was a horrible morning and between the squalls of heavy rain and gale-force winds, I had to be quick to capture the image before rain soaked the filters and the wind was calm enough to allow a 10 second exposure. The horrible weather had its benefits as the dark rain heavy clouds allowed the sea to almost glow with the famous turquoise colours of the Hebridean seasLocation: Seilebost, Isle of Harris, Scotland Catalogue Reference: A-1710-0141Copyright © 2017 Phil Corley

  • Break in the Weather

    As the black rain heavy clouds passed over, a break in the weather let some light fall over the retreating tide on the beach at Traigh RosamolLocation: Isle of Harris, Scotland Catalogue Reference: A-1017-0166 Copyright © 2017 Phil Corley

  • Windswept Rannoch

    As more rain sweeps in over Black Mount, it was hard to stand, let alone keep the camera steady for a 15 second exposure.Location: Rannoch Moor, Scotland Catalogue Reference: A-1017-0134 Copyright © 2017 Phil Corley
