I have just come back from a trip up to the Glencoe/ Rannoch Moor area and spent a productive day shooting there. I have been working through my images but I thought I would post this one first.
This is Loch Tulla, not long after sunrise. The fog had started to burn off from the winter sun, leaving the valley floor shrouded in mist that swirled around the bottom of the mountains. This left an idyllic Scottish scene with the semi-frozen loch reflecting the snow covered peaks behind.
This image was made up from 13 seperate images taken in portrait format and stitched together. This creates a very large image of over 14500 pixels on the longest side. This allows this image to be enlarged to very large sizes with no loss in quality or resolution. A scene such as this deserves to be captured with as much detail and quality as possible.
My first landscape image for a couple of months. I managed to get out for a sunset a couple of nights ago to one of my favourite locations, Portencross. Luckily for me this is only 15 minutes from my house.
I like the way this image contrasts the red of the sky with the white of the waves breaking around the foreground rocks.
I have just returned home from a week’s holiday in Jersey. I managed to get out and about on a few occasions and take some images. This is Plemont Bay, a sandy beach that is only uncovered at low tide and is enclosed on 3 sides by cliffs. The only access down to the beach is from steps and a metal bridge then from there some concrete steps allow access to the beach at low tide.
This image was taken from the top of the rocks as the tide was turning. This is a 30 second long exposure with the Hitech Pro Stop.
Another image from my trip to Knapps Loch. It’s always good to revisit your images after a week or so, sometimes it makes you discover new ones that are worth processing.
During the spell of good weather we have been having the past week, I decided it was time to get back up to Knapps Loch to capture a sunrise. On calm mornings when overnight temperatures are low, misty conditions are almost guaranteed.
A 4am rise saw us arrive at Knapps Loch just after 5am, nearly an hour before sunrise. We were greeted with loads of mist rolling over the loch. In fact at times the three boats on the Loch were completely hidden by the mist!
The first image is taken not long after we arrived as the sky started to lighten with the rising of the sun.
Another image taken just a few minutes before sunrise.
two images from after sunrise where the cloud formation and lack of wind made for some great reflection shots.
Although it would have been perfect if the rising sun had lit up the underneath of the mackerel clouds, we did have a good trip with a few keepers and worth the effort of a 4am rise.
