We had a great time out on the island this past Wednesday. Myself and three hearty souls braved the rough ride out to the island for a fun filled day of photography. There was a large group of volunteers working hard on repairing the walkway and re-shingling the side of the Keepers cottage. We started shooting right away and the island did not disappoint as it was a beautiful clear day with some wispy clouds moving by. These clouds provided a really interesting perspective to the granite towers of the Twin Lights. The large rookery of gulls provided some entertainment as we moved about the island. Below are a few images I made with the Leica M-P 240 and the Sony Nex-7 with the Leica 90mm Tele-Elmarit. You can see a full gallery of images here.
