The Faerie Pools, Isle of Skye, Scotland. by 


The Faerie pools are very photogenic, and I like them best on a ‘bad’ weather day, when you can attempt to capture the mood of the surrounding dark and brooding mountains. This view is looking towards a famous climb, called “Stovepipe Gully”.
The rocks are slippery, not an easy place to set up a tripod, and I have been observed by more sane folk than myself, crawling on hands and knees for the best vantage point !
There is a trail/walk alongside the burn and various pools that goes quite some way into the hills, amidst very grandiose scenery……..but prepare for wet feet, the ground is amazingly boggy here ……… and those rocks you have to clamber over to get your shot ? EXTRA slippery !!

This is a three RAW HDR, shot on my Canon EOS 40D, mounted on the tripod, polariser fitted, to lose two stops of light for the blur effect, f27, underexposed by half a stop, then a +2EV and -2EV from that reading, iso 100, auto wb, processed in Photomatix, then in Adobe CS3 with various tweaks to colours etc., and where the water was burned out by the HDR process, layered in parts of the original 0EV file.
