Photo Essay: The Isle of Skye, Scotland

I believe that creativity is one of the pillars of living a healthy and fulfilling life. And, because I try to live out the principles that I write about each week and not merely talk about them, every few months I set out on a photography trip to create art, explore the world, and learn a thing or two along the way.

This photo essay was created on the Isle of Skye, the largest island in a chain known as the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. As always, all photos are my own.

Just a few minutes outside the town of Uig on the Isle of Skye, south of the River of Conon, there is a magical place known as Fairy Glen. Fairy Glen is made up of over 400 miniature, cone-shaped hills and grassy knolls. There is a winding, one-lane road that leads to and from the glen. (Isle of Skye, Scotland)
