Winter on Skye Print
Winter on Skye. printed with Epson UltraChrome™HDR-inkt on 260gr. paper. Framed 60x50cm. Limited edition.
The weather can be wild, wet and windy, but temperatures rarely drop below freezing and snow is usually confined to the high hills. Roads are deserted and if you choose to walk at one of the famous landmarks such as the Old Man of Storr or the Fairy Pools, you might not meet another soul.
Whilst Winter days are short here, nights skies can be incredible, Skye has the darkest possible night skies in the whole of the UK, and nine separate sites on the Island have been granted Dark Sky status. The Northern Lights can also be seen from Skye in the Winter, although of course they cannot be guaranteed.
