Safely Gathered In- Inverness Scotland

By VincentChristopher
Sept 2019 we took a week out Kayaking around Scotland using Fort Augustus as our base...a day when the weather was not too good I took a trip out in the car from Fort Augustus towards and over to Applecross ( blowing a gale ) on getting to Applecross I intended to turn around but the thought of backtracking down The Pass of The Cattle in those conditions unnerved me.
So I continued around the peninsular towards Innverness...and then the weather improved.....

As I approached into a small village I spotted this field with the hay rolled up ready for stopped my car and composed and took the shot.........I must confess I have adjusted the sky to give it a more dramatic status from its grey format

Hope you like .

The combination of dramatic sky and beautifully gathered in harvest makes compulsive viewing. I hope the farmer got to the bales before the rain did.
My son- in-law cycled the pass once and we went up ahead by car.

A good low pov to add drama to this summery well-composed image. I particularly like the rays through the clouds and the positioning of the largest bale.

This is about making a great photo...not reporting what you "actually" saw. This is a beautiful photo, Vincent. The gold of the hay against the lead grey sky is amazing!

My award

A stunning rural image, love the rays! Great composition too.
