Derek Fogg’s images of Mull
Derek Fogg, a landscape photographer based in North West England, runs the website British Landscapes. He’s recently added a new set of pictures called the “Isles of Mull and Iona” which contains some beautiful landscape images captured during his recent visit.
As Derek explains in his blog, he started out with about 600 images from all over Mull and Iona, but he’s now cut this down to 40, some of which are now live for others to appreciate.
These latest photos are part of his wider project to journey around the British Isles capturing landscapes. But, whilst he had some pretty challenging conditions during his stint on Mull, he’s managed to capture some really evocative and beatifully composed images.
You often see photographs from Mull which, perhaps inevitably, represent familiar subjects that crop up again and again. The three rotting fishing boats on the Salen coast road to Tobermory are pretty iconic with everyone who passes by with a camera. But Derek has managed to take those old hulls and place them in the context of their surroundings beautifully, with a backdrop that follows the line of the Sound of Mull northwards and thus gives a great sense of overall place.
Check out his other photos. It’s well worth the visit.
