Had a couple of trips over to Elgol on our trip last week and we were rewarded with some lovely conditions at times. We did comment throughout the holiday we were surprised at how benign the tides were, so not much in the way of crashing waves anywhere ... always another reason to go back I suppose Grin

I think Rich [though it may have been Fran] mentioned that this particular stone had been shot a couple of times before, most notably by some bloke called Joe Dorset or Devonish [or summat similar to that - I forget now] Wink Anyway, does that mean that you shouldn't shoot it because it's already been done? (Never stopped me before Wink )

0.5 secs @ ISO100, 0.6 + 0.9 ND grads [angled] + 0.6 ProGlass ND.

Just noticed it's just gone past beer-o'clock ... catch up in a mo, cheers for dropping by Smile

Better than the effort i did 10 years ago but then it was on a D100 i think at the time (it was good at the time though).
someday i will have to get back up there, hope the midgies did not get you Paul.

A fine shot of probably the most famous stone in all of Scotland. It sounds as if you had a rough time with the midges, Paul. I've never ventured up to Scotland in the summer, and from your descriptions I think I'll keep it that way.

I've never totted up the hours I've spent here but it must be pretty long, it's a place you never tire of.
Nice light and it's good to see a calm image instead of the furious splashes and waves so many have done before.
The midges are a pain, that's why I stay away in the summer months, but the little buggers can be there early and late, there's no real respite except the winter.

I would imagine the midges are more manageable out of the summer season though, so maybe we will return then. Cheers.
