Water Water

tried for a wee bit o' a splash instead of the full silk 


This is just a quick edit of a throwaway shot trying out creating depth to the shot using levels, saturation
and the gradient tool instead of my usual method of working. Not to sure if I like the result so I think I'll try an edit in my usual style lol to compare.

note bugger i've been making the shots slightly bigger by altering the image coding just discovered by accident you can now do it by clicking the image in edit before posting... my!

Well you just have to give it a go in wild weather 70-90 mph winds and yes even today there were numptys out playing golf :)))

Didn't expect much and didn't get much just this one. For the best of the action with the howling gale and spume there was just nowhere to set up. Where you could get shelter the action was just not there, even then keeping the lens clear from rain and spume swirling around rocks and headlands was just impossible... instantly wet! Although it doesn't do it justice one will just have to do.

Falls Corsock

Made a bit of a mistake with this shot... for some reason the camera was set to jpeg, not knowing that I did my work flow as usual so it's probably been over sharpened etc. There is another set of falls just out of shot on the right and both water flows converge unfortunately I just couldn't get a composition to include both.... until that is I had packed up and was heading home then I spotted a "possible" comp but the light had gone so i'll try again some day.

Shock horror I actually ventured out today with the camera instead of editing stuff from last year. Although I have done some colour correction I decided to leave in some green colour cast in one or two areas not sure if I should though.

Tumbling Water 2

Steall Away

One of the few places that that can never be surmounted by the first time you see it after the short walk into it from the Nevis Gorge..... the Steall Falls. The best way to describe it is like entering the land that time forgot after traversing the steep narrow gorge. Taken at around midday not the best of light but hey!!

Boat Killantringan

Last night as usual always always clouds over when I get here.

Cloudy Day

Talk about slow thick stupid! Perhaps one of the things that slowed down posting was all the effort of resizing etc and it just occurred to me for blog purposes just record a Photoshop action and do it all at one click. So a shot taken yesterday taken with the intent of converting to B&W but when I started the edit I preferred the colour version.

Smoke Signals (spur of the moment post)

I knew I shouldn't have said I'd be posting on a regular basis in that last post Dec 2010, bound to put the prayers on it.

Anyhoo his is a spur of the moment post so not the best of shots of Eigg & Rùm, but all I could lay my hands on from this PC at this moment of spontaneity... caused I might add by a visit to Marks blog The Photographic Aspect (see sidebar for link). Haven't taken many photos of late, in a bit of a malaise I suppose also playing Black Ops to late into the night might play a part in it I suppose hmm....
