We appear to have done our usual trick again of having glorious weather when we’re on holiday. Since changing camp from Skye to Lochcarron, we’ve had clear, bright skies, and sunshine. Wonderful to be in, not so good for photography.
Nevertheless, we decided on a small drive through Glen Torridon, home of some of Scotland’s highest mountains and some of the world’s oldest rock. It did not disappoint. We stopped off for a hike down to the shore of Loch Clair and were greeted with perfect, crystal reflections. By this point my excitement levels had flown through the roof whilst trying to find a good composition for this oft-visited scene. Thankfully, I snagged this comp of Liathach (pronounced “LEE-uchh”, meaning “the grey one”, 1,055m/3,461ft) . 20 minutes later, a gentle breeze ruffled the surface of the loch and all reflections disappeared. =)
ISO100, f/8, 1⁄80sec at 16mm (24mm full-frame equiv.) using both a soft 1-stop and a soft 3-stop ND grad filter stacked on my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens attached to a Nikon D7000. This is a single exposure shot four times for focus stacking. Processed in Capture One, edited in Photoshop.
Fucking cartoons these days can’t just have a nice, simple fun-filled plot can they?? NOOOO they have to be full of SOUL PROPHECIES and ILLUMINATI TRIANGLES AND HAVE REALLY LONG HIATUS’ THAT MAKE ME DIE ON THE INSIDE.
