The Cuillins From Elgol

By Philpot  
Here's another from my Skye trip in March, possibly the best location on the island in my opinion. I spent a good 2 hours here at the end of the rocky pebbled beach and waited until those clouds hovered over the left hand peak. For this 5 minute exposure I used a 10 stop ND Filter, although its a Lee Big Stopper it gives a colour cast which I really struggled to edit to get the sky looking as it was, the blue cast of the filter and probably being exposed in the blue hour didnt help things and only seemed to make things worse, being colour blind is another hurdle I often have to overcome too, Its the first time I've been defeated in editing a colour image!.....the answer, turn into a black and white. Thanks for looking.

Well, whatever it looked like in colour, it looks super in mono, Phil! 👍 I like how the rock formation seems to point towards the distant mountains, as do the clouds due to the long exposure 😀

Gorgeous landscape, I tend to prefer b/w for landscapes anyway.
