Neist Point by TobiasRichter Neist Point by TobiasRichter
Isle of Skye, UK
Autumn 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 the second part of my UK-series 2013, I present the images of the Isle of Skye. The fascinating hills and the impressive coastline are typical for the Scottish landscape. The weather was as expected at the end of November – very rough. During my ten-day stay there was no day without rain and storm. But in the rare minutes when the sun showed the landscape turned into a fairy tale world and I was spectacular rewarded for the long rainy waiting times. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

Wow, what a lovely shot. I love the timing of the lighting and how it contrasts with the dark clouds - much like the contrast between the land jutting into the water.

Sehr schön :)

Hätte man sich noch mehr auf den Weg links konzentrieren können, meiner Meinung nach :)
So, dass der Weg von unten links nach oben rechts bis zum Leuchtturm das gesamte bild ausfüllt, so wie es im moment ist, ist mir das ganze etwas zu offen, zuviel drumherum. Ich schneide mittlerweile lieber etwas an und konzentriere mich auf Teile der landschaft, den himmel hier hätte ich komplett weggelassen, den Horizont schön nach oben und mich mit nem Tele, bzw. ner größeren brennweite mehr auf die landschaftlichen details konzentriert, sodass man bei nem 3:2 gelandet wäre :)

"Hinten links" könnte das Wasser und der Himmel ruhig etwas mehr Kontrast (Licht) vertragen, sieht etwas grau aus.
Bei dem Felsen, der den Horizont überragt, kann man den Horizont noch etwas abdunkeln.

LG
Jan
