Yet another beautiful autumn day today so another quick jaunt out with the camera to try and catch the excellent vibrant colours. I used a CPL filter to try and capture the depth of the blue sky and avoid it being blown out as I tried to also capture the colours in the landscape. This worked really well for these first two shots where the sunshine was behind and to the left side, but less so in other directions. The shot of the road leading to Duirinish is one I have tried to capture before without much success. This is a fairly steep and twisty downhill section through lovely broadleaved woodland and it always looks at its best in autumn. The sky was a bit blown out so I had to reduce the brightness of it using Vivezia Pro2 but otherwise came out not too bad.
