Sunrise over Stac Pollaidh, Inverpolly, North West Scotland. by 


Stac Pollaidh, North West Geopark.
We spent a weeks holiday in this area, and the weather was pretty poor most days, I had a hard time pulling anything good out of my Canon 40D !!
However, on the last morning, I woke early to a glimmer of light, and planned to shoot the early morning light falling on the Summer Isle. Of course, that didn’t work out, so feeling despondant, drove around the corner to turn around.
Glad I did, for less than five minutes, the light played ball !
I knew I couldn’t shoot for a conventional shot, far too much contrast with those sunbeams, so I settled for a three – shot , hand-held, HDR image. There wasn’t time to set up the tripod, but I didn’t need it, since great depth of field was not required on this occasion. The light rapidly disappeared under a big blanket of cloud, which remained with us in the North West for over a WEEK !!
It was however, a magical moment, filled with adrenaline !

Shot on my Canon EOS 40D, Tamron lens, f 8, hand held, 0EV, -2EV, +2EV, RAW, iso 100, cloudy wb, then processed in Photomatix, and further enhanced in Adobe Photoshop CS3, where I had to do some more selective Tone Mapping, in particular the moorland, where I wanted a little ‘pool’ of light.
LAB colour was also employed.
