The only way to climb up this steep sand dune on Seilebost Beach on the Isle of Harris was to hang onto the long grasses for dear life! The Isle of Harris is part of the Outer Hebrides archipelago off the North-West coast of Scotland. Picture by my young assistant, DJ, without whose help I would never have made it up that steep slope! The Hebrides are one of the last strongholds of unspoiled natural beauty in the British Isles,

I have been heavily involved in photography since 2006 and it has pushed my other interests into the background. I have always used Canon cameras, but recently treated myself to a Nikon Coolpix.

At this rate I will soon need a wheelbarrow, when I go out on a photoshoot! Most of my pictures are handheld, as I do not like working with tripods. They are a nuisance to cart around and it takes ages to assemble the things. However, for certain kinds of photography they are indispensable.

    Beautiful, Kathryn, great angle and I love the feathery break the grasses make between earth and sky :) Congrats on being featured!

  • Thank you so much, Regina. It reminds me a bit of a Mohican haircut, which fits in with the wild nature of the terrain!
