The start of March has been really busy with no chance for any photography until today but fortunately I had a day off work and the weather was OK so I popped out this morning and got a few more shots for my Higher Photography project. The one above is a panorama of five shots, but I foolishly didn't check the ISO setting so it was at the camera's maximum and hence the picture was a bit grainy. I managed to control that a bit in Lightroom but I think it could have been better if I had only noticed. The image itself is of the runrig croft land at Duirinish and you can see the narrow strips running right to left. In the distance on the left you can see the Drumbuie tonwship.
Some of the other images are shown in the gallery below. I have done most in black & white but felt the Cottar's House was better in colour, although I don't really like the brightly painted old machinery, so I might try it in black & white too. The hay rake was the same but in this case I didn't have the interesting background colour of the pink house so chose the B&W option.
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.
