The Soft Light of Morning, Portree, Skye by 

Anyone who knows me, knows that I don’t do mornings. Yet the rules seem to get suspended when you’re on holiday, and at 6 a.m. on our last morning in Portree, I was awoken by the sunlight and I was out there! Knowing how changeable Scottish weather can be, I quickly threw my outdoor gear on over my PJs, and was out the door to capture the morning light. Hope you like it.

Canon EOS 550D. Canon 18 – 55 mm lens, Hoya CP, and 0.6 ND filter. Tonemapped from a single RAW file (Photomatix Pro 4.0.2).

    Great light!!
    Hey, does PJ’s stand for Polar Jumpsuit…..i imagine its a tad chilly over there!!

  • ha ha ha ha ha! What’s so funny is that I was in such a hurry to get outside, I only had time sling a pair of thongs on my feet. So there’s me outside in waterproof overtrousers, fleece, waterproof jacket and…thongs. I saw only two other people out at the same time as me, and understandably, they thought I was mad :) For my part I didn’t notice it too much…though maybe my feet were just numb from cold :D

    Thanks David! :)
