Misty Scottish Loch, Isle of Lewis

The Story Behind the Image - Misty Scottish Loch, Isle of Lewis

I was on my way to the ferry at Tarbert on the Isle of Harris after three amazing days photographing the conjoined islands of Lewis and Harris.

I was very conscious of getting to Tarbert in time for my early departure because if I missed the ferry I would have to wait an entire day for the next one.

I was driving south from Stornoway towards Tarbert, wistfully wishing I could stay longer, when I came around a bend in the road and saw a small loch, mist rising off the water in the early morning sunlight.

Though I was desperately conscious of leaving enough time to make my ferry I figured I had time for five minutes of photography. In the end, I took more like 10 minutes, and I'm happy to say I made the ferry in plenty of time. This was the result.
