Sky on Skye

    Newer Older

    As we arrived at the northeast arm of the Isle of Skye we were met by a fantastic storm. I stopped the car on the deserted road and got out to look at the sky and the country all around me. It was alive with beautiful and vibrant colour and light. Several dramatic photos emerged. This is one of my favourites. To me, it's very mood evoking.

      That is a really good photo :-)

      I came from www.smashingmagazine.com/2008/09/07/35-brilliant-examples... which i'm guessing a fair portion of the others came from too.

      This is my favorite weather/sky phenomenon; so difficult to capture in a photograph and you've done an amazing job.

      Contrast of rocks against the dark sky is very dramatic. Beautifully exposed.
