Com­muning with Skye

The Oban Times - - News -

A NEW book cap­tur­ing the na­ture and to­pog­ra­phy on Skye was launched on Mon­day by a Scot­tish land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher.

Allan Wright’s Skye – A

Pho­to­graphic Com­mu­nion was un­veiled to the pub­lic at an of­fi­cial event at the Aros Cen­tre, Portree, with Mr Wright on hand to give the au­di­ence a pre­sen­ta­tion about the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind the pho­to­graphs.

MP for Ross, Skye and Lochaber Ian Black­ford also at­tended the launch, giv­ing a short pre­sen­ta­tion to the au­di­ence.

Allan said: ‘I’ve al­ways been drawn to Skye’s mag­i­cal scenery and in 2014 I made the de­ci­sion to in­vest a lot more time there. Pho­tograph­ing Skye was in­spir­ing, fun and a fan­tas­tic artis­tic jour­ney. I hope vis­i­tors, busi­nesses and is­lan­ders en­joy the images cap­tured in this book for many years to come.’ Ian Black­ford said: ‘ We are so lucky to live and work in such a beau­ti­ful area, able to ex­pe­ri­ence daily the sights and scenes cap­tured by Allan. I am delighted peo­ple across the world will be able to en­joy these won­der­ful images and per­haps be en­cour­aged to visit.’
