Have I mentioned how much I love Isle of Skye? Yea I did in another post and in my 1st video vlog I did roughly about a year ago.
I decided to go back to Skye for Christmas to capture some of the winter beauty. I was hoping for snow but it wasn’t in the forecast. I rented a cottage high in the mountains which was amazing. Skye was hit with a huge snow storm that allowed me to get some great winter photos after all. I was staying so high up the mountain that I almost couldn’t get down and up the road. Some minor roads were completely ice. I hit the usual spots Fairy Glen, Quiraing, Old Man of Storr, Fairy Pools, Eilean Donan Castle, Sligachan and Neist Point Lighthouse. I finally saw a decent sunset at Neist Point, saw great snow at the Quiraing and hiked once again an hour up to the Old Man of Storr to catch the sunrise. I even got a reflection photo of the Old Man of Storr that I waited a year for. It was actually the last photo I took while I was driving to leave Skye. The wind was finally low enough for me to catch the reflection in the water. This experience is one I hope you get to do someday. Take a look at the pics below.
