Happy New Year

January 7, 2008

This Hogmanay my friend Liz was visiting from New York and a group of us spent a few days staying in a youth hostel on Bernary in the Outer Hebrides. Its a stunning place and I ended up using a lot of film which I will be processing for a few weeks I think. The full set is here on flickr and I will be adding to it as I process the films.

In the meantime here are a few holiday pics. This is the beach directly outside the hostel. We saw seals swimming right here but I didn’t have a lens longer that 50mm so didn’t try and photograph them.

The view from the hostel one morning. The hostel is a converted crofters house – basic but has everything you might need.

Liz on a beach in North Uist – she is in good spirits despite the fact that about 120 minutes before this she fell on her bum in a quagmire of mud.

Yum, seabirds!

Seabirds!

The view from a dirty window on the way home…
