The Russell Burn , Applecross, Western Scotland. by 


A view of the Russell Burn (river) in early Spring, when the hills are still very sombre after the vagaries of Winter. I prefer this place when the weather is rather glum, it defines the mood and savagery of the austere and bleak landscape. The red sandstone helps to lift the view a little , in a somewhat monotone scene.
Seen on the spectacular Bealach na Ba road from Lochcarron to Applecross.

Shot on my Canon EOS 50D, tripod, ND 6 stop B+W filter, 17-85mm Canon IS lens, set at 17mm, iso 100, f22, three RAW files processed in Photomatix/PS CS4, TWICE. First one, with a warm colour temperature, the second, as a cool temperature, then the two blended in Photoshop…warm for the rocks and mountain, cool for the water and clouds.
Waited around for the sun to go behind a cloud to avoid burnout on the water.
Sharpened in LAB mode.

THIS image was published in the Christmas issue of DIGITAL PHOTO magazine.
