A series of captivating coastal images showcase the colourful northern tip of the UK.
Alessio Putzu, 29, who lives in London, spent two weeks camping in the Hebrides and Isle of Skye, North West Scotland, to find the most hidden and beautiful settings along the coastlines of Scotland.
Despite being washed up by heavy rainfall, Alessio, continued with his photography quest and managed to capture nature in its finest form.
From the top of mountains to beach fronts, Alessio’s range of images all differ in colour and landscapes.
Alessio said: “I was washed up by the heavy rain but that’s what landscape photography is all about.
“Being involved in all the elements and trying to capture them at their best.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks of camping, the beautiful place gave me so much inspiration, I went to the very top of the island, Butt of Lewis, and got a beautiful sunrise on the amazing rock formations at the lighthouse.
“Having three pictures out of three, I wanted more from the weather so I’ve headed to Mangersta stacks for the sunset having a beautiful side light hitting the needles in the sea.
“The very last day at the sunset, I went to a remote area reaching a beautiful sea stack after a long walk, and the picture speak itself by the beauty and luck had for that sunset.
“It was time to get back to the mainland so from Stornoway I took the ferry to Ullapool and with two friends we headed up north to Stoer, in Assynt, framing the amazing sunset at Stoer Lighthouse.”
