Ephemeral

By hwatt  
Everyone must surely have seen this view or very similar of the Quiraing so I have been a little reluctant to put it up here. But if light is what a photograph lives or dies by then hopefully this stonking, searing ray of light through some very heavy storm clouds will energise a very familiar view. Twas an awesome if very brief moment of exquisite transient light.

Pentax 67II, 55-100 zoom, hard edge 0.45ND Grad, soft edge 0.3ND Grad across sky, f/22 at 1/2 Second Fuji velvia 50.

I am grateful for this view-- AWESOME!
Sometimes it is about waiting....and sometimes just being lucky...and smart enough to have your camera with you and ready.

This is a masterful and gorgeous photo...one I would have been proud to have taken.....but I have no idea what this place is. What a view and amazing light.


My award.

Peter
