Photographing the Winter Freeze, Quiraing, Isle of Skye – Landscape Photography

During my two days on Skye en-route to the Outer Hebrides, I decided to visit the iconic Quiraing in harsh, wintery, freezing conditions. I walked four miles from the roadside and back to ensure that I did not become stranded by the icy conditions.

I have included several images that I took yesterday afternoon (Fri 29th Dec 217). Let me know what you think and feel free to leave a comment below and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE if you wish.
