A few thoughts from the South Bank and Gursky

Some images from a visit into London to see the work of some highly talented artists at the Oxo Tower, and also view the Gursky exhibition at the Hayward Gallery. I was very moved by the Gursky, not something I was expecting.

Harris workshop, day 6, final morning on Luskentyre

We were due to fly back from Stornoway that morning, but there was enough time to sneak in an early visit to Luskentyre to see the sun rise. it came up spectacularly behind the beach, casting a red glow over the hills. Many thanks to Lizzie Shepherd and Alex Hare for such a well planned and varied workshop.  Hurrah!!

Harris workshop, day 5, Huisinis Beach and sunset over the Harris hills

We continued the day by driving west to Huisinis Beach, which looked luminous in the late afternoon light.\We finished the day looking at the North Harris hills at dusk. It was very cloudy and there was only a tiny area of pink in the sky, but it was very beautiful.

Harris workshop, day 5, more decrepitude, this time a boat

After lunch on day 5 we drove from Scalpay round to North Harris and passed a rather lovely rotting boat on the bank of Loch Leosavay. It was lying next to an equally abandoned shed and curiously next to an iron safe, bound with string. There were beautiful patterns of rust on the boat. While we were there we were observed by a rather curious sheep.
