Taken on the Isle of Mull last year, this was taken just off the road to the south west. It was a lovely spot and the rocks looked like something from Mars!
Used a polarising filter and an ND Graduated 8 filter. Increased the contrast in the sky to bring out some of the lovely detail in the clouds.
Thanks for looking.

Very Martian indeed, such an unusual colour. Super composition and water movement.
Nice shot Chris. I did a mod for you in Photoshop camera raw, gradient filter on the sky -1.05 exposure, contrast +58, highlights - 34, shadows +53. I opened it up in PS and copied the background layer. Layers panel > blending mode > screen > opacity 30%. I then used the clone stamp tool on some of the cloud and put it over the brighter area's to try and balance the sky a little more. Hope you like it.
I didn't know there were rocks like this in Mull.
Makes for a very interesting image.
Good scene and composition which works very well from this POV.
It does look a little like HDR to me eye's but that could be because you've altered the contrast. Chris try going to "Levels" and slightly altering the midtones (which is the middle pointer on the slider). Move it to the right to give the image a little more definition. If you just want to work on the sky then before making the adjustment just select that area.
Nice image Chris.
Thanks for all the great comments and the mods I still have a lot to learn in post processing but the feedback really helps so thanks to everyone.
@IrishKate the rocks were like rust they were more of a deep orange than red in reality but I think the polariser and white balance tipped it towards red. This shot was taken downstream later on: http://www.ephotozine.com/user/chrissp26-17276/gallery/photo/bridge-over-mulled-... you can see the rocks are more orange here.
Thanks again for all the great feedback!
