The Isle of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides is perfect for learning landscape photography. The remote golden beaches and turquoise coloured waters of the Atlantic Ocean offer a sense of desolation, wilderness and a true sense of freedom, and I love running my Harris and Lewis photography workshops for this reason.
Harris and Lewis is actually one island that is just 80 miles from the south of Harris to the north of Lewis. The variety of scenery is staggering. The terrain is quite different on both parts of the island. The Isle of Lewis is located to the north of Harris and occupies the majority of the island. I find the more dramatic views are on Lewis. The sea stacks of Mangersta and Tolsta (Garry Beach) are quite simply magnificent and reminiscent of those found on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. The iconic and mystical Callanish standing stones also greet you on Lewis and on a stormy day can be very atmospheric.
Harris on the other hand I find to be more about peace and tranquillity with the beautiful world-famous Luskentyre Beach stretching out on the west coast with its stunning sand dunes and aqua coloured water. The salt marshes of Northton in the south of Harris provide the landscape photographer with ample opportunities to capture them at their best while the 368-metre Ceapabhal fell in the distance provides a wonderful backdrop.
Collectively Lewis and Harris will provide you with memories that can be beautifully captured on camera and I look forward to welcoming you on one of my photography workshops here. I can personally guarantee you that you will love it as much as I do.
