Photographer's Note

North of Uig, a place called Sgeir Lang slipway.
A family trip to Skye, home of my ancestors, who left around 1750, to work with the biggest employer of the time, the English army. He served in Canada, and was offered land in the Cornwall city area, in Ontario, at the end of its service. A good choice, as a piece of land here, was thousand of time more producing then anything on Skye, where peat moss dominates.
About the photo, we are on the weatern shore of the Trotternish peninsula, looking towards the isle of Harris and Lewis, on the horizon, around 11o'clock in the evening, close to the summer soltice, meaning a never ending light. I did use a few filters, first a Singhray variND, wanting to gat this silky look on the water, then a singhray 3-stop inverted grad ND, and a singhray 3 stop ND grad. This was not still not enough to bring the sky, so I did 3 1/3 bracketing images and used 2 to create this picture.
And, not to forget all the fun and excitment at being there in these conditions that every photographer wants to get, only to be taken back from my balloon, by my wife telling me it was midnight and that there was a busy day the morrow.An evening I will never forget.
