Crash landed a Hunters Moon

Well I though I would demonstarte the diversity of textures in the scottish landscape - even on adrich day contrasts can be found - less than 300 meters from my misty Loch Duich was this stark contrast - by avoiding the mist and dricht using along lens to isolate the reflection - I ended up with this. I was drawn to the circular shape and the title fell from that - enjoy

I was drawn to the circular shape and the title fell from that – admittedly the colour is a little flat but then that is how it was – notice also the tide draining out of this sea loch placing the seaweed just below the surface in nice lines 🙂

  1. Although I mostly seem unable to ignore the sky in my photography, I do enjoy images like this where it is omitted. Lovely way to concentrate the eye and mind on the contours of the landscape.

    1. You have been exceptionally unlucky, I follow the weather bulletins very closely and always have an alternative option. I am establishing Photowalks towards the end of the year so that is something to consider if you get the chance to return.

  2. Beautiful! Another photo that captures the essence of Scotland. And an imaginative title!

    1. Cheers Phil – glad folks are enjoying the flatter colours cause that is all we have currently – but Scotland is awakening from it’s winter slumber.

  3. I especially like the seaweed, it adds a little something unexpected. I think your title made me see the whole scene differently from how I might otherwise have viewed it too, an altogether very satisfying post!

    1. Excellent Jo said something similar regarding the title – language and descriptors seem to be as important as the material – but then you off all bloggers know that Lorna.

  4. Smashing image as ever Scott. Love the colours, textures and the reflection in the loch. The Scottish dreich, I remember it well. The Cornish don’t use the word but Cornwall does a pretty good impression on a very regular basis. I use dreich frequently and I’m always met with puzzlement but when I explain, all agree it’s a great word. Well done for getting past the weather to come up with this photo 🙂
    BTW I noticed my images were not turning up in WordPress searches so I asked the question with a post in the forum to be informed that, if you use more than 15 tags, WordPress treats this as ‘tag storming’ i.e a deliberate attempt to get your post to show up everywhere and in multiple searches, so they won’t display you post. 😐

    1. now that is very interesting – I am targeting my Google search engine profile versus my WordPress footprint – may explain why my WordPress spread appears to come by word of mouth and not Tags. Will have a think
