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. 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.

  3. 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
