Overpowering Grandeur

By lucinka
Scotland >> Western Isles >> Isle of Skye

Here is photo from one of my favorite places - Isle of Skye. Although I've been on Isle of Skye just a month and half ago, I didn't get such a great light as 2 years ago. Isle of Skye is absolutely amazing place especially when you get lucky and the light is right. It is very special place any time you visit it, however the landscape particularly stands out when there are some clouds and sunshine at the same time to give some additional depth to already very diverse landscape.

Truly fantastic landscape, 10 out of ten.
I have just viewed your portfolio, and you have some excellent images. You have a good eye for a picture, and seem to have settled on a wonderful way of recording a landscape in all its glory. Use of light, rendition and compostion are perfect. Thanks for showing us your pictures. Peter.
