Highland Sunrise by TobiasRichter Highland Sunrise by TobiasRichter
An Teallach, 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.

In early December winter comes to northern Scotland. Ice covered the countless lakes and the frequently showers turn into snowfall. In the last part of my UK series I show the shots from Wester Ross. The photos were taken during several hikes in the spectacular mountainous regions An Teallach and Torridon. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

First, I'll just say this is an ultra-amazing shot, so anything I may say that sounds critical, just know that it's just my personal opinion speaking and most likely you know better than to listen to it. :)

That being said, I love the depth of this photo. All the details are clear and full up front, and they lead the viewer's eyes from bottom to top. The framing is also wonderful. With the capture of the marsh up front and mountains in the background and beautiful clouds at the top, there is sooooo much to look at!

The coloring is amazing. The warm and contrasting colors of the clouds make the mountains almost look like silhouettes. It is really easy to just stare at this photo for minutes, taking in all the detail and space covered.

The only thing I might consider changing, if it were me, is possibly finding a balanced way to desaturate the color in the water. In a lot of cases, color reflection adds a nice touch, but that's only when the overall photo lacks distinctive color. The warm color in the clouds is a nice contrast to the ground, so having the color in the water (too near the landscape) is a bit of a distraction.

Otherwise, this is such a gorgeous shot. I can't wait to see more!

Die Stimmung und das Licht machen echt was her, da kann man auch über die wie ~da-phil "langweilige Komposition" hinweg sehen, geht halt nicht immer alles :)

How lovely, this memory that you've stirred in me. I've walked across a few glens in the night and have witnessed such sunrises.

Das ist bisher mein Favourit... durch die Spiegelung des Himmels wirkt das Bild sehr kompakt, als wären Himmel und Erde eins.

Ja ich gebe zu ich war noch nicht ganz wach und etwas überrascht von dem Licht. Deswegen war ich nicht gerade am perfekten Ort und ich bin auch nicht richtig zufrieden mit der Komposition.
