For me quite simply one of, if not the most stunning places I have visited so far, Vestrahorn.

A huge difference to the last time I was here where you couldn't see the tops of the mountains and it was too rough to get up by the coastal section, today was the total reverse with the dunes being unshootable due to extreme winds howling around and blowing the black sand round everywhere, so the coast was actually a far more sheltered option.

One of my favourites from the mornings shoot at sunrise, not long after I'd fallen and ended up on my backside on the rocks... unhurt but covered in mud and sand..

This shot was a case of getting to a shutter speed that I liked and just waiting for the right time, and the right wave to give me what I was try to achieve.

Explore #5 04/03/20

First image from a recent very productive trip up to Scotland, with Brad Eide, Mike Muddyboots, Andy Rouse, Geoff Moore, and Mark Waidson. The weather had looked pretty horrible on the forecast but always with these things they can (and usually do) change at a moments notice.

This morning we had also met up with Louise (Skyeweasel) who had come out with us for the day.

About 10 minutes before this shot was taken we had watched a huge storm roll in and completely cover the mountains from further away by the time we got to Torrin it had completely broken up and gorgeous sunshine was illuminating the mountains and foreground with the tops totally clear. I quickly went about shooting what I wanted, which was a pano of the scene (15 shots consisting of 3 x 1 stop bracketed images x5).

I was quite fortunate in the timing to grab this shot as another 10 minutes passed and the weather turned again producing, snow, hail, thunder and lightning, and once again the mountains completely vanished into the weather front.

I can't honestly remember in all the trips to Scotland I've done such crazy weather, to jump from bright sunlight to sideways hail and lightning in the blink of an aye. Pretty much every weather condition going !! I was hopeful looking at the back of the camera with this image at the time with the patches of light and heavy cloud.

Best viewed large on a big screen.
