I took this shot of the Cuillin whilst walking over to Talisker Bay, with just over an hour and a half till sunset. The clouds that made me think that the sunset would be a good one were the reason I took this shot, knowing that I’d be treating it as a mono image. I like the sense of space you get with this shot; it really gives you an idea of the kind of remoteness you can encounter in parts of Skye.

I’ve converted and processed this in Silver Efex Pro and applied a red filter to make the most of the blue patches of sky, and then applied a slight sepia tone. Black and white images are definitely an area of my photography that I’d like to improve on, so hopefully the new software will be a good starting place!
