Mull Iona and Staffa

I went to Mull, Iona and Staffa in pursuit of Hebridean light. On this photographic journey my intention was to reveal special qualities within the landscape of these islands. Excursions took me from Fingal’s Cave on Staffa, to St. Columba’s landing place on Iona. On Mull, I ventured from the high tops around Ben More to the desolate Ardmeanach peninsula. These photographs cover mountains, hills, coastline, rivers and gems such as waterfalls and frozen hill lochs. These islands with their seaborne approaches should not be regarded merely as an appendage to the western highlands of Scotland, but as places with a distinct life and history. So the photography includes churches, castles, ancient graveyards, fishing vessels, celtic crosses and standing stones. 

All 89 photographs in the book were made using Fuji Velvia film. A large-format Ebony 45s and a medium-format Mamiya 7II proved to be a good combination for the varied terrain.
