The island is a beautiful and peaceful place, high enough in the northern hemisphere for drawn out golden sunsets. Ideal for photography.
The first test for the camera was a climb up Beinn Na Caillich, a 732m hill west of Broadford. Not a massive climb by any standard, but certainly something you would think twice about before dragging a 4x5 camera up.
The camera excels in this kind of situation; It is light enough to not hold you back whilst climbing and hardy enough to withstand a bit of rough treatment.
The weather was changing rapidly and we had to keep moving around to try and find a shot, I had no problems with just chucking the camera over my shoulder and continuing on.
After A steep 3 hour climb we reached the summit, the views were amazing but a fog had rolled in and the light was no good, we waited for a while and enjoyed the view. Never mind, sometimes you don't need to take a picture. We did still managed to grab a couple of nice shots on the way back down though.
