Mind-blowing Rocks on The Isle of Iona
I've never seen rocks like these before.
In fact I think they might just be the most beautifully coloured and pattern rocks I have and will ever see. Streaks of lime green and electric pink clash with black granite in rocks that look like animations, the colours are so vibrant and intense.
The beach: Traigh an t-Suidhe on the north-end of the Isle of Iona is a treasure trove of stunning, metamorphic rock formations, which few people know about. The sandy beaches here are most often deserted, and I had the beach pretty much to myself for the few hours I was here combing the shoreline. Glistening under the incoming April tide and the sun, these rocks seemed to come alive, revealing their explosive colours and patterns- I was entranced.
Using a Nikon f2.8, 105mm macro lens, I was able to get some close-up shots of the intricate patterns and colours in the rocks. Once again, I'd really recommend trying out some up-close, abstract landscape photography- the results can be really exciting and unique!
