    This is a much photographed sea stack in the North Of Scotland taken on a stormy January evening with a 50mph wind blowing from the West (left). A 1s exposure allowed me to run down the beach get an image and run back before I got soaked. KenDSC4456-5-white-stroke-slightly-warmer-sky-from-laptop

    Well done indeed. It reminds me of Michael Reichmann (going from memory here). On the east coast, I believe, had his tripod set up, and all of a sudden a wave sent him scurrying back to shore. Turned around and realized his tripod was still there, sitting in water, where he left it. ?

    I have to be careful around water; the ocean likes to play games with me. It’s all in fun, I suppose, but I’m the one who gets wet. ?

    Mike.

    A quick and dirty mono conversion. It may interset people that the sun had set behind me and to the left but when I saw the bright patch of sky in the North North East it looked like the direction that the light was coming from so I dodged and burned to fit in with this light direction.

    They’re both good, but in this case I prefer the colour version. To each his own, or her own as the case may be.

    I prefer the colour version because it gives a better impression of a Scottish winter. This location is the same latitude as Nutak in Labrador so winter is dark and grey, no polar bears though. I do like the brighter and harder water in front of the waves in the mono version so will look at changing the colour version to reflect this. Ken

    Moody and wonderful…. I’d have a hard time choosing between the renditions.
