On and around the Isle of Skye
« on: February 01, 2013, 04:39:31 PM »

Looking towards Plockton Harbour with the Black Cuillins of the Isle of Skye in the background.

I have found since living and working/semi retiring on the IoS, that occasionally (very occasionally) we get these amazing golden light sunsets, which seem to last for only a matter of minutes. They also seem to coincide with a very calm sea, as can be seen in the water of the tidal sea loch, which is at the head of Loch Carron.

Lovely, lovely, lovely.

A side note: now I am seeing what Oscar was talking about in another thread, i.e., the difference between colors in the thumbnail (yellower) and the image enlarged, once clicked on (redder):

Thats what you get when posting a JPG in ProPhotoRGB and a thumbnail that is stripped of the profile and interpreted as sRGB...

Midgies?.... with the wonderful light...have never quite experienced such gold, except before a long storm and rainy day. Satisfying and very calming to see it as you captured...

Thank-you very much Slobodan, I know if you like it, then it really is a worthy image. You have made me very happy.

Yes I noted that too but didn't know why - so now I know, thanks afx and that I need to convert into sRGB before I post.

Yes, very nice, but snow Dave, where's the snow? Did I mention the snow (lots of) we've had in Somerset? We've had lots of it. The snow. Where's your snow?

But yes, it's very nice, in a non-snowy kind of way  ;)

Bill, that is very annoying, you are absolutely correct of course, but none the less annoying  :D

This is the neareast thing (image below) we have had to snow, just on the tops, it is still here BTW, but no where near the quantities that I wanted it to be. This is also a Prophoto image and not sRGB, so less colour in the preview probably.

Happily, no midges since early Oct and don't expect the little beasties to start reappearing and annoying the hell out of me until late May  ;)

I am up for a dawn shoot overlooking the five sisters tomorrow, clear and cold the weather forecast says, so hopefully I will get something worth getting out early(ish) and shivering for.

Have a good weekend all :)

Dave

That is my kind of image. A lovely rendering and showing the importance of good foreground interest which I feel is needed in a successful sunset image. I am a little surprised however that Bill didn't ask about a lighthouse. ;) :)

+1 & +1

Nice layered tonalities in the mountains as well.
