The exceptional weather over the Bank Holiday has allowed Western Isles photographers a veritable field day for dramatic images of island scenery.

Unusual northerly winds drove the wild sea in new and spectacular directions, while a lying cover of snow showed up hills and outlined every feature in the villages.

Photographers headed for Ness yesterday to get the most dramatic images, like this one from Scott Davidson, who’s work also featured during the recent best beach competition run on social media by Western Isles Weather.

Callanish Digital Design also went to Ness, but then caught this image of waves and hail together, closer to home at Dalbeg.

In Barra, Benbecula plumber Norman Macleod was working on a contract this morning (Tuesday) when he spotted the top view over Castlebay.

And Sarah Luna loved the way snow on the Harris hills accentuated the beauty of the scene which she has captured here.
