Yet another fantastic November dawn on Loch Alsh. This time I remembered my kit as well as the camera so tried taking the shot with the variable ND filter pretty much on full strength to get a good long exposure to smooth out the water. I think it worked quite well although I ended up cropping the original image which was taken at full wide angle (17mm) because there was too much uninteresting white sky, particularly in the top left of the image.
Below are a few shots taken over the past couple of days, yesterday on the estate and on Sunday with Steve Carter over by Kishorn & Shieldaig. The view of Skye from Achintraid was slightly blown out in the highlights and needed quite a lot of work to tone that down and to be honest I don't think it worked too well, and we were jsut a little late for the best of the light on Loch Torridon.
I am an amateur photographer who is also a Chartered Geographer (GIS) with his own part-time consultancy business and I work as an estate manager for a national conservation charity in Scotland. I am based in Lochalsh, Wester Ross, Scotland, just next to the Isle of Skye.
