Harris in Scotland

Over Christmas I went to the Hebridean island of Lewis. On Christmas eve at around 10am I set off on what would normally be a one hour drive to the south of Harris, the neighbouring island. This was my first chance to try out the GF1 with the 14-45mm in a truly wild place.

The snow had been falling for days but today it was icy cold with a brilliant blue sky. About 20 minutes down this road I reached some amazing hills with frozen lakes. I used a circular polariser as usual and although I had the tripod I knew there would be more to shoot over the next hill so I cut corners to save time and shot wider open than the book would say was prudent. I’d do the same again as the vistas just kept getting better and better.
