The Sliding Earth

This… this was a magical experience. On our way back to the car from hiking around the Quiraing the sun suddenly burst through the speeding clouds, illuminating the otherworldly landscape. I love it when this happens because it really pulls out all the textures and contours of the scene, bringing it to life. =)

Quiraing, Trotternish, Isle of Skye, Hebrides, Highlands, Scotland.

ISO100, f/13, 11mm (16.5mm full-frame equiv.) using my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens attached to a Nikon D7000. As I didn’t want to miss this dazzling display of light, I skipped using my filters and opted for some bracketed exposures. These were processed into an HDR image using Aurora HDR 2017, finished in Color Efex Pro and Photoshop.
