This sunset at the westend of Little Loch Broom in the noth-west of Scotland was captured in July at half past nine pm. A pretty typical shot for Scottish landscape and atmosphere. The shot is a 1/100 sec, f/4.0, one aperture overexposed, ISO 100. The lens was a EF 24-70 mm f/4L IS USM at 40 mm on a Canon EOS 5DSR.
In the far north of Scotland there are amazing beaches – unexpectedly! This one is the so called Sango Sands beach close to Durness. The beautiful color of the sea is intensified through this long exposure shot of 10 sec. at f/16 and ISO 100. The lens used was a EF 24-70 f/4L IS USM at 33 mm with a neutral desity filter Firecrest ND 3.0.
This nice beach, also in the north, is a little bit more east and called Melvich beach.
The below shot is a nice addition to my “horizontal lines” water pictures. Strong colors and high dynamic at the Melvich beach (1/2000 sec. f/4, ISO 100, 32 mm).
Scotland has many many waterfalls although they are not as spectacular as the ones in Iceland, except this one. The Smoo Cave waterfall close to Durness in the north of Scotland is really special as the water falls from outside into the cave and flows through it into the sea. As it was anyway dark in the cave there was no need for a neutral desity filter to get to 8 sec. exposure at f/14 and ISO 400 with 33 mm.
