I have just come back from a weeks photographic trip to Skye. Seven days shooting and over 1900 shots later, I now have loads of images to process. I thought I would update the blog with the daily results of the trip. In my mind this makes it a bit easier to follow. Don’t miss the last day though which had an amazing sunset!
This is Elgol. A scene that has been pictured loads of times, but still impressive nonetheless with the Cuillin’s in the background.
I thought I would try something different and have some extra long exposures to blur the incoming tide. I used a Hitech 10 stop ND filter which can be problematic at times with colour casts and flare. I think I have got the flare issue sorted though. It seems that if you make sure the filter is covered around the top and sides it helps to stop light leaking onto the sensor. It is also advisable to cover the viewfinder too as this can also cause stray light to hit the sensor.
