Dream Light

Mrs Flying Pig and I went up to Loch Lomond yesterday afternoon to feed ducks and look for something to photograph.


The ducks were fed, but I didn't find anything to photograph so I decided that a run up to Loch Arklet was in order. I didn't want to shoot the lone tree there again, I've done it a few times now and there's only so much can be done with it. (Conditions were good for it as it happens)


As we were driving up I noticed a wee rise at the side of the road I've not bothered with before and decided that was were my shot lay.


I waited until the sun was almost behind the hills to the right of the shot here and started shooting.


There was quite a breeze, and with it being very lush just now, everything but the rocks was moving, which, when combined with my ten stop filter gives a really dreamy effect.


This was my last shot of the night. When I saw it pop up on the camera screen I packed up and went home. The clouds a bit later were cool but I don't think I'd have bettered this.


**Edited to add - If anyone goes up there and finds my hi-tech filter holder with polariser ring, gimme a shout, lost the damn thing!**


Press L to see it in all its glory.
