Icy Cold

Icy Cold

Photo Information
Rannoch Moor, Scottish Highlands. It wasn't actually freezing cold when this was shot, but the lakes were still frozen and the warmer temperatures had caused water to form over the top of the ice. This gave it a magical appearance which together with the great skies made for a fantastic scene.

K-5, DA 16-45, Polariser, Hitech ND Grad 0.9, Tripod.

Now this I like much more than the portrait shot of the same. I think you have got the foreground content right.

With such a wide open vista, the landscape format suits it so much better. The colour hue presents the cold theme well.

Excellent shot, David. Love the lead-in rock at the bottom.

Was the ND Grad a hard- or soft-filter ??

Best wishes

Hi Nigel, it was a soft edged one, or as Shaun Wilson always reminds me 'the one for amateurs'!
