Duncansby by TobiasRichter Duncansby by TobiasRichter
Caithness, UK
Winter 2012

With the aim of shooting some Scottish Landscapes in dynamic weather I started my trip to Great Britain in mid-November and traveled for about 5 weeks trough the country. My journey took me from the south coast of England via Northumberland to Scotland. In Scotland I traveled from the Isle of Skye to Caithness, Torridon and Assynt. As expected the weather conditions were very contrary (snow, sun, storm, rain). The exposed position at the Atlantic Ocean is responsible for the unpredictable weather in western Scotland. Often it’s possible to experience several seasons within one day. Although it often wasn’t very easy to keep my camera dry, I was rewarded with a variety of spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

The third part of the UK-2012 series shows the northern end of Great Britain, with its spectacular cliffs and the lonely landscape of Inverpolly Nature Reserve. On a starry night at Dunnet Head I had the chance to shot auroras for the first time. The view from the almost 100 m high cliffs to the nearby Orkney Islands and the play of colors in the sky will remain in my memory for long. In Inverpolly I was less fortunate with the weather and had only an extreme rare time seeing the impressive landscape without low-hanging rain clouds. But I will definitively return to that great place. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

Trotz des Rauschens in den dunklen Regionen ein verdammter Hingucker. :+fav:

Ich bin auch neidisch auf das Licht und die Location. Ich wünschte, ich war Kajak.
