Berneray trip

Berneray, Harris

 

Just back from a short November work trip to North Uist and Berneray in unusually mild weather.

After a mostly bright sunny day on Tuesday, it was pure uninterrupted sunshine from dawn to dusk on the Wednesday, making it a pleasure to be working outside on Berneray, but difficult to leave for home the next morning…another day or two staying in Lochmaddy would have been nice, but other work beckons.

Above is a photo of a fiery red cloud just before sunrise at Ruisgarry, Berneray.

Press photography

By John MacLean, 15/11/13:

 

French newspaper Libération removes all photographs from its 14th November issue to highlight both the value of images and the precarious state of professional press photography.

“A visual shock. For the first time in its history, Libération is published without photographs. In their place: a series of empty frames that create a form of silence; an uncomfortable one. It’s noticeable, information is missing, as if we had become a mute newspaper.”
