The Isle of Skye - a Pastoral View
« on: April 21, 2022, 06:19:26 am »

Trigger warning - I will be dropping the 'F' bomb during this post...

Well I finally got my A7R2 back after 6 long weeks of waiting for it to be repaired and then sent back to me.

So as soon as it arrived by courier, I threw on my trusty old 70/200 Canon 2.8L, dusted off my tripod and went out to take a few test shots of this local viewpoint, just to make sure that it was indeed fully repaired and working again and ended up standing here, on my own, looking at this amazing scene quickly begin to unfold in front of me and shouting out loud for all to hear (even though there was no one else there but me and the sheep, who chose to ignore me) - FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK ME, I LOVE THIS CAMERA and I LOOOOOOOVE THIS PLACE....!

Anyhow, you didn't really need to know any of that did you, but what the heck, I might as well tell you like it happened and how I came to take this shot  ;D

Needless to say, I was gobsmacked.

Dave

A very nice countryside scene. Every element is perfectly placed in the frame, just like a painting.
Well done and I'm glad you got your camera back and fully working.

You are trying to make me blush with embarrassment again aren't you?

Thanks though  ;)
