Scilly Things

15 Oct 2020

I was fortunate enough to spend a few days over on the Isles of Scilly at the end of September. With the exception of a flying visit for work in 2019, I hadn't been over to the islands since family holidays in the 80s. One of the things I most love about the Scillies, aside from the feeling of remoteness and obvious beauty, is the incredible range of colours and textures. My visit coincided with some rather stormy weather which added an extra layer of wildness to the place. Travelling light, I took my beloved Canon G7X with me and walked miles around St Agnes, St Martin's and St Mary's in all the weathers. ~ Sal
