...the blue light before dawn and a 2 minute exposure has softened the water of the Loch as the little waves moved across wiping the moons reflection away.
I was amazed as ever at the speed that the Moon moves in relation to Earth.
***10 stopper and ND grad.
Now that looks cold Doug,lovely exposure.
Stunning view, a very well exposed and captured image, great colour Geoff.
Beautiful and serene, like it a lot.
Nicely done Dougie, the long exposure bringing out that pre dawn blue well.
Cold light before dawn..... cold Dougie ? Ron.
Do you photograp these in your shorts or kilt Dougie.Te trouble with the 10stopper is that you have to stand in the cold so long.
Brrrrrrr! Lovely hues to this Dougie!
Like the blue tones in this Dougie, but it does look very cold, good work.
This shots a beauty Dougie. I love the almost monochromatic effect - it sure feels cold - and it has a lovely asymmetry to it.
10 stop coldness...lovely.!!
Don't fantasize Danny, it's bad for you at your age.
Like the blue tones, and I enjoyed the large version.
The blue hours are my favourite time to work with water. Great capture of the wee lochen. Aye, the large version, as always, a treat!
About as cold as you can get visually.
Fabulous and frightening.
There is a magic to the light, from the Snow Queen rather than the Lord of the Rings. Wonderful comp. and balance.
The moonlit landscape has a certain quality that is hard to define but so beautiful: the low light, the blue tones and the snow on the distant caps are all testimony to just how cold it must have been.
I can't help thinking you must be setting off from Glasgow to catch such images, just as I am heading for bed.
Superb work, Dougie.
(And thank you for your kind message in your comment yesterday....R)
Simply ' Beautiful ' Dougie - well taken !
Cold, but beautiful... And I had no idea the moon moves so quickly!
Quote: Simply ' Beautiful ' Dougie - well taken !
I agree with Chris.
PS Tried looking at the moon through a telescope recently. The moon really moves quick across your field of view then!
Lovely image Dougie, the blue conveys the coldness very well.
All the best
have to agree about the cold look but from where you are I am not surprised. I am snug in my little corner of the South East but where our temperature is probably warm to you its cold for us. I remember a trip to Scotland some years ago and the nearer we got to our destination the colder it became, I was under no illusion of the change in climate.
Morning blues - how I love them and how different I feel to "blue" when I experience it. Love also that your photography gives you that sense of amazement - we are so lucky to experience things at a certain age that make us go "wow".
A wonderful view of an amazing world that only a few early birds see - life is good.
Hats off to you Sir
Love it Dougie, nicely taken
Eerie overtones here - the lochan in a different light makes for interesting viewing. I had a couple of winter pre dawn images here last year which required long exposures with the resultant moon movement. I don't like the look of a blurred moon (or water for that matter) but with film I can't do much about it.
Original approach to this much photographed landscape.
The large version feels like -10C........beautiful blues.....serene.
I don't think it was that cold but it was a while ago so maybe? Thanks for all the kind comments Marie, hope you enjoyed the time spent. It's snowing up here in Glasgow and very grey. I won't be going very far today.
I have a ten stopper but not the amd grad New to me is that where can i buy one doudie (tongue in cheek)
Lovely dougie and i mean lovely
The moon still stands out in the shot as you have to look to see whats going on with that and then you realise that its the long expo thats created that effect.
The water being still and slightly softened adds extra viewing pleasure to the shot too.
Just not sure about the grey background? i believe it would be better either black or white as to me its taking my eye away from the shot itself a bit too much.
But the shot (I LOVE) and would have it on my wall
Thank You Dave, corected the typo and tried the black bg didn't like it here's the white? You can remove your tongue from your cheek now.
Much better dougie
