From the series 'The Sound of Raasay'.


On a short ferry journey From Sconser to Raasay I witnessed a fast-moving cloud structure from which numerous shafts of light descended the light both illuminated and obscured the mountains and the water. This light almost travelled alongside the boat and as we crossed the Sound it followed us. At points there were numerous streaks of light and at others just a chink or an illuminated cloud or two, I hastily and hurriedly attempted to record this fast-moving, dramatic and ever-evolving light condition in my sketchbook. On my return to the studio, I immediately started to make a number of images in reaction to that experience. After witnessing that atmospheric event during that twenty or so minute crossing I made the Crepuscular Rays Series which comprises twenty-eight pieces. I became absorbed in that series, in particular, I became fascinated in the subtle changes within the cloud structure and in turn the subtle effects this had on the land and water.
