Quiraing by TobiasRichter Quiraing 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!

Das ist natürlich schön, auch vom Blending! Aber hast du tatsächlich bei Offenblende 1.8 fotografiert? Wenn ja, warum. Is ja nicht ganz dein Stil ^^

Danke Stefan. Nein das ist mit einem Zeiss 35-70mm bei Blende 11 gemacht und der Adapter liefert diese Werte.

Great shots of Skye! Unfortunately when I was there I didn't have any time with the sun. It really helps show how dramatic the landscapes can be!
