Artist's Description

The Western Highlands of Scotland.
One of those times when everything goes right for a change, LOL ! ……..an image I had immense pleasure at taking !

The Russell Burn is a pretty sight at any time, but on this occasion, it clean took my breath away. Everything in the right place, even the light ! All I had to do was set up my tripod and shoot……after pulling a pair of old wooly socks over my boots to get a grip on the ice to get to the edge of the burn ! I didn’t fancy getting a dunking in the icy water !
The Bridge over the burn is crossed ‘en-route’ to Applecross, over the Bealach nam Bo, translated, “Pass of the Cattle”…..this is where in olden times the Drovers would drive their cattle across the mountains. I sometimes wonder if there was any meat left on the poor critters by the time they had reached the end of their very wild and rugged journey !!
Shot on my Canon EOS 50D, mounted on tripod.
f23 at 1/4 sec., iso 100, Auto WB, polariser, 17-85mm IS Canon lens set at 17mm, 3 RAW files at 0, -2 and +2 EV, processed in Photomatix, then tarted up in PS CS4, and sharpened/saturated in LAB mode.

MADE THE FRONT COVER OF DIGITAL PHOTO MAGAZINE CHRISTMAS 2010.
