Dark Skies of Letterewe by Alex37 Dark Skies of Letterewe by Alex37
There is always something left in the tank when I can see a good shot is possible. When light began to strike the summits of A'Mhaighdean and Ruadh Stac Mor I knew I didnít have that much time. I wolfed down my dinner (noodles) and ran the 500m or so downhill to a collection of pools I had photographed earlier. Out of breath and feeling rather hot (despite the cold temperatures) I set about reframing the shot just as light hit the summit and the ridges to the south. The dark cloud behind the mountain added to the sense of drama. Although the scene was somewhat foreboding we were lucky with the weather and didnít have a drop of rain all evening.

What a wonderful picture. And again, I shall say, this is hard work. This is ofcourse, doing what you like, but I see you in your efforts and your heart and soul into this; finding the spot, the timing and the lighting. Excellent. Excellent. :clap::clap::thumbsup:

Very nice! Picturing cloudy landscapes is always difficult since the light becomes dull. Here there is still enough light in the background which added to the water, makes everything work. Fine.
