Seascape from the Coigach peninsula, Wester Ross, Scotland.
I’m heading into Coigach and Assynt, where the isolated mountains of Suilven and Quinag rise steeply from flat moorland like totems in the landscape. For three nights in a row, sunset appears with a luminous intensity as I’ve never seen before. The entire sky is glowing vivid red and pink with the mountains burning fire orange. Holding my hand into the sunlight, it glows gold as if illuminated by a gelled spotlight in a theatre. On previewing the pictures on the camera, the images appear unreal, like I’d applied an extreme Instagram filter.
