The Old Man of Storr by TobiasRichter The Old Man of Storr 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!

Very beautiful, and may I say, "otherworldly". Reminiscent of Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles.

Ich formuliere es mal provokant;

Langweiliges Motiv, aber super umgesetzt :)

Brauchen gute Fotografen wirklich diese abgegriffenen Motive?
Mich langweilt das des öfteren, auch wenn es immernoch sehr schön anzusehen ist!
Du kannst doch super mit Licht umgehen, da brauchst du keinen Alten Mann fotografieren, oder? :)

genau das selbe habe ich mir beim betrachten auch gedacht ;)
ich kann den "collector shots" zwar auch nie widerstehen, aber irgendwie isses am schluss doch langweilig ein motiv zu fotografieren welches 100te andere professionelle fotografen schon im portfolio haben.

aber gut ist die aufnahme auf jeden fall ;)

Ein guter Fotograf macht überall gute Fotos. Natürlich auch bei den "Collector Shots", aber einzigartige Motive/Kompositionen faszinieren mich einfach tausend mal mehr und das Licht und die Technik, nun, das haben 90% der Landschaftsfotografen gut verstanden.

What a breathaking view ! You made a good work with the light and between the different parts of your picture, between a more full part and a more spacial place, between the curves and the sharp rocks :clap:

Claire. true that Bruce`s st0rry is something... on saturday I bought a great new Aston Martin DB5 since I been making $4509 this-past/5 weeks and more than $10 thousand lass month. this is actually the easiest work Ive had. I actually started eight months/ago and almost straight away began to earn at least $78... per/hr. I follow the instructions here, Cloud65.com
