Another quiet period on the blog due to me visiting South Uist in the Outer Hebrides for 10 days. Although the wildlife there was very difficult to capture due to 60mph+ high winds and being on migration, I did manage to get this image of a storm passing through the islands with just one tiny hole in the clouds allowing this rainbow to form over this farm in the rain. I really like this image as it could convey a lot of different meanings for a lot of different people.
South Uist, Outer Hebrides, Scotland. September, 2012.
Canon 5d MK3 and Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS lens.
Spending part of the New Year period with some close friends in Somerset allowed me to visit some new places for photography. New Years Day was going to be crisp and frosty which normally leads to a really stunning sunset so a visit to Sand Point was needed. Walking to the end of the point allowed an uncluttered view over the estuary towards Flat Holm and Steep Holm. The colours in the sky were really intense and was well worth the visit. After getting the pictures I wanted of the sunset, I started to walk back in the near darkness watching the hues of the sunset just hinting above the horizon to what colours they were just half an hour before. Knowing that the colours of the sky would still be picked out by the cameras sensitive sensor, but also knowing that it was too dark to get static pictures I started to get artistic! The results are below. What do you think? More images of this session will be appearing on ALAMY soon so please keep checking the link to the right.
If anybody wants to know how I captured the first two images (or any images for that matter) then please get in touch.
All of the images seen here (or on Alamy, or my website) can be purchased as prints or canvases. Please get in touch for more details.
