The best way to see Elgol, is NOT when the skies are blue with fluffy clouds ! This is a dramatic place , with savage weather at any time of the year. This was taken in high Summer, July to be exact, two years ago, when the sun and clouds were having their usual cat and mouse game !
Skye magic !
This was one of my very first attempts at HDR !
A hand -held shot because of the wind threatening to tip my tripod (and me) over the steep cliff edge by which I was standing !
Shot on my Canon EOS 40D, iso 100, Auto WB, polarising filter, hand held, f6.7, 1/250 sec, lens set at 40mm (Canon 18-55mm)
A single RAW file processed in Photomatix, (pseudo HDR) then tarted up in PS CS3.
