Skye

Here are a couple from the Isle of Skye last week. There's a few more in the gallery.

View down the Trotternish Ridge



Just a rock...

Re: Skye

No 2 is a lovely intriguing image.

No 1 says to me - well why didn't you take it from the next outcrop, but it's a nice shot.

Re: Skye

They both work for me, for entirely different reasons of course. THe last time I was on Skye was 12 years ago, far too long.

Well done.

Re: Skye

Thanks for the comments. You could be right about the horizon - I have a habit of getting them squint. I thought it might have been the camera for a while, but I think I just have a lopsided brain or something... Maybe some sort of level in the viewfinder would help - when will someone invent that?

I do actually have another shot of the ridge taken from further round - I'll try and dig it out tonight.

Cheers,
Mike

Re: Skye

Here's the other shot - taken from a bit further round. Not the most interesting shot, but the light was nice (or at least nicer than it was the rest of the week) and I think the horizon's straight

Re: Skye

I like them all and like John it's been too long

I'm not sure the horizon is a problem - nowhere in that picture are you seeing level horizon. It's mountains and coastlines everywhere

regards
Andy

So do I. Good eyesight but use a camera and I'm one degree down on the right.
The cure is a bubble level for the hotshoe. (assuming you are using a tripod) About 10 from Jessops, etc.

Nice light in the pictures & I like the B&W.

Re: Skye

I really like the 2nd black and white image, lovely texture. That would be great framed on the wall. I know what you mean about horizons, I always get them wrong even when I am mentally shouting at myself when taking a shot. I am very envious of my dads E-30 that does have a view finder level.

Cheers

Chris

Re: Skye

Both are very nice images, now I would just loved to have seen a beautiful woman in a long flowing gown or cape standing on the cliff edge in no1, not a lot to ask is it!
