Lewis: Tràigh Dal Mor by Kasia-D

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Taken around 7.30 a.m. on late May morning on my first trip to the Outer Hebrides in 2006. I got up before dawn to take photos at the standing stones of Calanais. The early morning light was wonderful and I seemed to have the Hebridean island completely to myself, so I continued up the coast for a couple of other stops including Dalmore Beach. Then back to the B&B very hungry my full Scottish breakfast:-)

Location: Traigh Dal Mor, Isle of Lewis, Scotland, UK
Nikon D70, Nikkor 18-70mm. 33 mm; f/3/8, 1/1250s. Unfortunately, I’d not discovered the advantages of RAW yet. Post-pro adjustment of contrasts, colour and sharpness in CS4 with Nik ColorEfex Pro 4.0.

    Gorgeous Now all the same No matter what u may have done different Impulse has captured this Fab Image Well done KD Frank xx

  • Thank you so much, Frank. I clearly had a feel for a good scene ;-) back then but used automatic settings, saving in jpg. I go for f/10 or higher now and perhaps slower timing too. But I definitely would save in raw now, as the original jpg had a very low resolution and little depth.
