The Road To Elgol
Lens: HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm F3.5-5.6 ED DC WR Camera: Pentax K1 Photo Location: Isle of Skye ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F7.1 
Posted By: Sunburn, 10-20-2020, 06:48 AM

So, I managed to get out twice into the woods this weekend hoping to capture some autumnal images with the trees changing colours and perhaps do a [link=https://youtu.be/RLUcrYlGKnk]small video[/link] about the image taking process and what nots.

Well, the thing is if you have been out of practise for a while it soon becomes apparent when you try to pick up where you left off. I spent most of the weekend stumbling around in my wellies, slipping in the mud, and not really remembering how to use my camera!

So unfortunately I haven't really got anything to show for my efforts, so back to the archives for an image taken on the [link=https://youtu.be/Hd0wX9IGPvM]Isle of Skye[/link] on the road to Elgol

I must agree with Susan as this is a wonderful landscape image. Nothing to not be in love with and that choice of gear combination is quite impressive. Many thanks for posting.

Very nice image. There is just a suggestion that the warm light will soon be replaced by something much less appealing. You caught this at the right moment.

Absolutely fabulous!

Did you have to high-tail it out of there real quick, after taking this shot??

Thank you very much. Got a drenching only a few moments later as that storm came sweeping down the valley.

Thank you, the conditions were changing every 15 min or so, ranging from sunshine, showers, snow, hail wind, clam was like that for the 4 days I was on Skye. Was quite an experience and left an impression with me.
Problem now is, being at home and the familiarity of local, its hard to find motivation..

Ha! anyone else probably would have, however I was more weather proof than my Pentax gear so carried on shooting for several more hours. I'll try to remember to post an image taken later that afternoon/evening
In fact here you go...

The second image is just as beautiful as the first. You have lots of nice things in your Flickr photostream.

That is also truly excellent. Great colours - and your image makes one want to know the history behind the ruins. You have absolutely made the most of the time of day for lighting and colours!

Thank you, its one of my favourites from the weeks adventure too. I have an image or too to post from Elgol itself where the conditions were out of this world.

Thank you. I know someone who might know, so will try asking them to see if they can give any further info, from speaking about it with them previously I think it was an old crofting lodge abandoned in the 19th century, but don't hold me to that, i suspect I'll be mistaken hehehe
