My second trip to Scotland took me basically to the same areas as I visited in 2009 with the difference being that this time I had booked for May. I hoped to have a little more comfort & warmth with no more snow & to enjoy the spring blossoming out of every corner. Indeed, this was exactly what I experienced. The weather was kind to me on this trip I must admit & as you will see this reflects in the imagery that I shot whilst there. The weather is nonetheless changeable at any time of year here which makes it even more exciting, the creative juices start to flow & I was in my element. It was also interesting to observe how different the landscape looked now that the snow had disappeared.
Although as I previously mentioned, my visit was to the same area, the West Highlands, my intention this time was to explore the area in a bit more depth. I had realized after my first trip how much I had missed due to either bad planning or bad weather conditions. A good example as far as the weather was concerned was the Isle of Skye. I drove around the whole island last time & missed one of the most important features, Neist Point lighthouse. This was to be one of the highlights & lowlights of the trip as I had fractured a toe slipping from a wet rock at Elgol in the south of the island the day before. It almost killed me to walk the winding partly steep path to the Point but I was rewarded with some beautiful material.
