Passing Storm

By Legend147
Our first trip to the Old Man Of Storr

I rushed up the trail mid morning leaving my wife some way behind to get up there before the sun was too bright. We started out a tad late. Upon arrival the light was very bright but after a few minutes a very welcome cloud bank floated in creating some beautiful shadows on the surrounding area. I just had to convert this to black and white.

Wow - a cracking shot Andy! Do like the black and white. It's almost like a moonscape to me. Well taken.

So dramatic and beautiful at the same time. I do hope you didn't have far to go to get in your car.

Revisiting this stunning b&w conversion to hand over a GEA, Andy.
I have been following a YouTube channel called Photography Online who are based on Skye, and was there several times as a bairn, so can relate with this vista.
