Skye & The Glens

Next story is out on my Exposure-site, this time from Scotland. 


I've spent a great deal of time the last couple of weeks to put together a story from my latest trip that brought me to Scotland and to be more precise, Isle of Skye and the Highlands. As the subheading to the story goes "A trip I should have made long ago" I'm basically pointing towards the fact that I have been very close to embark on many times before but not really been able to pull the trigger. I absolutely loved every second of it - the harsh weather, moody landscapes and magic light. Me and my two fellow travelers were all set and kind of wishing for harsh, windy, rainy weather and we certainly got a bunch of that. We feel it suits the landscapes the best, while I also want to point out that it could have been a hundred times more dramatic as well. That's why I don't think everyone would love it - you should be able to appreciate the dark clouds, unpredictable rain and howling winds. I'll cover much much more about the trip in the story and I won't go into that in this post, so just head over to the freshly released story and see what you think about it. Hopefully it'll inspire you.

For this trip I used my new X-Pro2 and lenses of 14, 23, 35, 90 and 55-200 mm. Worked a treat as usual, so enjoyable to shoot with.

If you like the story please press that little button labeled "Enjoy" and give it a share with people around you. It truly means a lot to me to get that feedback from you out there. Today it's so hard to get someone to pause for even five minutes to read/view a story, but I hope you'll take your time. Instagram and similar direct services are great in many ways, but sometimes you need more time and space to share your work. This does not pay me directly in any way, it is only my greatest passion to travel, photograph and share what I experience. If you ever wondered ;) I fund my trips (which I always try to keep on a tight budget) with other photo assignments such as weddings or events, and that way it works alright for now. Maybe some day I can make combine assignments with trips, that would be great.

The drive back to Edinburgh and our flight back was nothing short of spectacular.

Hopefully I'll be able to share some more experiences of the trip at some point, along with some additional shots that did not make the story and this post. Can't wait to be back here soon.
