Photo of the Week: Trotternish Ridge from the Quiraing Footpath
I have previously vowed not to follow the hoardes and take this shot from the Quiraing footpath looking south. However, I had the chance of the place to my self - entirely - today and that has to be pretty rare so I took the opportunity for my first visit in over 30 years. Despite the cliche, I am very happy with the result. I opted for a desaturated finish, which I feel reflects the winter colour pallete more accurately than the more common over-saturated approach. This one worked for me and has produced a really dramatic image. The sad lonely tree does beg the question of what the landscape might look like if there had been less grazing by sheep over the years?
