Taken in early morning, in between snow showers, the white washed houses of the village of Shieldaig are dwarfed by the hills of Torridon beyond. The clouds, which had earlier covered the sky, were now being blown by the wind, which allowed the sun to sneak through and form pools of light on the landscape. Established in 1800, Shieldaig is nestled at the head of Loch and takes its name from the Norse meaning Herring Bay and can be found in the mountainous region of Torridon in the northwest corner of Scotland.
Part of the joy of photographing Scotland and her landscape, is the solitude forced upon the photographer with the time and patience to wait - sometimes it only takes three weeks!
