Quiraing  - Re-edit by AndyMumford Quiraing  - Re-edit by AndyMumford
After I returned from Scotland I didn't spend enough time editing the shots, and this one in particular was rushed...I was never happy with, so I've gone back and done it again. This has a darker foreground..in the last one it was much brighter which reduced the contrast and drama in the shapes of the landscape and the light, and I've also cropped it a little on the right.

A shot looking east into the rising sun from the Quiraing, Isle of Skye
It's a very very common location, but the place we stayed was 5 minutes driving from here...so what are you going to do? NOT shoot it?

I had wonderful conditions that morning, the sun was mostly obscured, but as the cloud wasn't too heavy, there was still plenty of colour in the sky and breaks in the cloud for sun beams.

From the exact same spot I captured my last submission about 15 minutes later with a telephoto lens.

Hell's Teeth! What an amazing shot...You have made it far from common with your treatment of it. I've never seen it in this light.

This is just amazing! The hills in the foreground remind me of thick nap velvet which stretches back to a coarser cotton. May be a common sight, but you've given it an uncommon touch. Thank you!
