Title: Epic!!!!
Post by: Dave (Isle of Skye) on December 24, 2018, 06:12:13 am
An epic storm, skimming over the top of an epic landscape at the first light of day - so what more could a landscape photographer ever hope for?

Shot in Arches N. P. at the Courthouse Towers Overlook just after dawn.

This is also a huuuuge 'Vertical' pano BTW  :)

Really great image, wish you could change the color temperature maybe just my iPad but the sky looks as if it has a yellow tint contamination.

Here with a "normal PC with Windows 10" that's well balanced between warm (yellow) and cold (blue).

Thanks Thierry, as I wasn't seeing a 'yellow tint contamination' either and wondered if it was my calibration that had failed..

And a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has commented on this image and a Merry Christmas and New year to all  :) :) :)

Great photograph, Dave. Any thoughts of a monochrome version? It sure speaks to me in B&W, but it is your photo!

Hi Terry,

I have been away in Sheffield visiting my parents and have only just arrived back, so having seen your comment above, I gave it a whirl to see what I could do with it in mono, but everything I tried seemed to come out flat and disappointing. So yes I have tried as you suggested, but couldn't come up with anything worth showing I am afraid  :-[

But perhaps a different day and a different mindset might help in the future.

Glad you liked the original though  :)

Thanks

Dave

Very nice and dramatic. Funny thing is that when I first saw the photo, I thought that it was very unusual for Isle of Skye…

Thanks Francios and yes we do have some amazing and very photographic rock structures on Skye, but no red sandstone deserts unfortunately  :)

A very nice image.

Thank you  ;)

top class.

Well what more can I say, other than thank you so much for saying that :)
