this is a restored traditional 'black house' - built for smallholders to accommodate both family and cattle!

Evening sun at Horgabost beach, Harris. There is a campsite here - basic facilities but clean and in a fabulous setting overlooking the uninhabited island of Taransay (remember the 2000 BBC series Castaway?). Most campers fled after a night of high gales but we stuck it out and were rewarded by some glorious weather for the next couple of days.

this isn't the Caribbean - its South Harris. I love the pure quality of light and amazing deserted stretches of white sand and blue water. The best beaches in Britain for sure. It's a good job it is remote - imagine if this got spoiled by the lager louts! I need to get back SOON.

Neist Point on the Isle of Skye is the most westerly point in Britain which is reachable without the need for boat or plane. The rocky area between the point and the lighthouse contains dozens of curious man made cairns which some accounts attribute to new-age travellers. While we were there some morons knocked over a few so we added our own cairns to compensate! This was a surprising discovery and an amazing place to wander and wonder.

I thought it might be interesting to photograph great scenery from INSIDE a phonebox. I like to think about whether people who use the phones appreciate, or even notice, the stunning views. This may become a future project for a body of work - in the meanwhile this is Finsbay in Harris. The door to the box had fallen off giving a decent view without shooting through dirty perspex.
