Woke up to a beautiful crisp cold morning with the sun rising over the Kintail Hills and lighting up the sky. This shot was taken at the old slip at the foot of our drive. I didn't have time for the full ND treatment so just reduced the ISO to its lowest setting selected the smallest aperture I could to produce a reasonably long exposure of 1 second, thus producing the beautiful smooth surface of the sea.
The following image was taken from the hill above Auchtertyre again looking towards the Five Sisters of Kintail. The best of the light had passed by the time I got there but it was still worth taking this shot I think.
