Another highlight from Lewis (and Harris for that matter) were the brilliant white sand beaches. It was not very warm and a sea breeze was blowing, so stripping off and having dip was not on the cards, although we did see a hardy soul in a wet suit surfing the waves on the west coast of South Harris. Not only were the beaches white, wide and deserted there was also very little rubbish to be seen.
The different shades of colour on the sand, in the sea and in the sky make this a good subject for abstract art and later we saw several beautiful examples of impressions of the colours on the coasts, painted on silk, in a gallery on Harris. The scene below is on the east coast of Lewis a few miles north of Stornoway.
If you like beachcombing, looking for shells and stones, quiet, the sound of the waves, cliffs, etc. then you would enjoy a trip to Harris and Lewis.
Again I found some interesting textures, and in this case colours, to photograph.
