Early light on the Quiraing.

Here is my first upload from our rather eventful two day stay on the Isle of Skye.

I headed to the Quiraing for the sunrise on the first morning. I had never been to this location on my previous visits to this island so it was a double challenge due to not knowing what the land was like and the lack of any interest in the sky. The beautiful warm early morning light made up for this though and I really like the result.


This image is a combination of two exposures, one exposed for the foreground and one exposed for the sky. The two images where combined manually in Photoshop Elements 9 using layers and masks before boosting contrast slightly then resizing and a slight sharpening.


Here is an aerial view of this images location using Flashearth. The link will open in a new window or tab.
