Photoessay: Mull, Iona, and the Scottish Isles / by Martin Siggers

I'm lucky enough to have a friend whose family own a cottage on the Ross of Mull, a remote peninsula in Western Scotland, and recently I've had to opportunity to spend a little time out there. The Scottish highlands have a uniquely bleak, windswept beauty, but they can be a harsh environment to work in, especially if the weather is inhospitable. Fortunately, we were blessed with bright sunshine and clear skies, and shooting was an absolute joy as a result. Here's a few samples from the fortnight I spent out there. You can find the full album on Flickr here.

All photos shot on an Olympus OM-D E-M1, with 12-40/2.8, 40-150/4-5.6R, and 45/1.8 lenses.
