Honey Light

By hwatt  
Rannoch Moor, Glencoe, Scotland.

Sunrise was a pretty sombre affair but there were gaps in the clouds so I opted to hang around and was gifted the most stunning low amber light, like thick clear honey drizzled over a beautiful wild moorland landscape. The cloak of broken cloud was peppered with blue and tinged slightly pink by the remnants of a sunrise that just failed to mature properly. The broken patches of intense sunlight create colossal visual depth and clarity.

Pentax 67II, 55-100 zoom, polariser, 0.45ND grad, f/16 at 1/2 second, Velvia.

Magical light.Superb image.
No matter where you tread you always leave a different footprint behind my friend. Just that special attention to the detail makes the difference, the fg grasses and the flitting shadows. Nice.

A truly beautiful image. It's all been said by others above. Was certainly worth hanging around for. I'd have been more than happy to have taken this shot.
