Took advantage of an unexpected free day today to make a visit to Elgol on Skye. The light was not brilliant but the clouds offered something and there was a bit of movement in the sea so I tried creating this image using HDR techniques plus using an ND12 filter to get a long exposure. The low shutter speed created this misty effect on the sea plus it also emphasised the movement in the sky quite effectively. This was taken on my Canon ES 5D with my 22-55mm lens at 22mm with an ND12 filter at 6s at f/22, ISO 100.
I also took this shot using the ND12 filter focusing close-up on the boulders on the beach. Quite an effective image.
On the way I also managed a few other decent shots in variable light looking over Cille Chroisd, also looking towards the mainland from the Elgol peninsula. Plus I thought the sheep was quite a good shot too.
