This was taken on the southern parts of the Isle of Skye.
The place is called Elgol and I was there under dramatic skies like it was often the case during my trip.
This little beach (if you can call it that) is mostly big rocks and when the tide is low and the light right it is a great place to play around with a camera.

Wow, wow, wow. Words are not enough. This picture jumped at me when I clicked on "gallery".
Amazing colurs and details. The light and sky and scenery in this one is gorgeous. Excellent timing and technique. Excellent angle. This is a piece of art.
Did you use some kind of filter? What post pro work have you done? Just curious to know...

Very dramatic skies with colored foreground interest. That ray of light seems awesome. Excellent sharpness, exposure and composition. Very well done. Have you used ND Grad filter?

Amazing shot, the red and gold colors of the alagae and the sunlight look great amidst the blue and grayish tones of the sky and the rocks. The little pool of water, the sunlight, the sky.. it has many details that make it great.
Really superb work congratulations,

elle est incroyable cette image.. On se croirait dans un paysage du seigneur des anneaux ! J'aime beaucoup le POV que tu as choisi ainsi que ces rayons de soleil qui s'abattent sur l'eau. C'est magique, étrange et beau ! Ca semble presque irréel...

An awesome shot with loads of atmosphere, and fantastic colouration especially in the grey/greens of the rocks and sky.
A pleasure to see Emmanuel. Well done.

A great shot. The colour tone is very eyepleasing. the rays of sun gives drama, wonderful perspective as well.

Hi Emmanuel. Unreal photo - literally. I mean it is almost phantasmagorical. I'm expecting to see valkaries or flying dragons coming out of this. Can a photo be too amazing? Regards Paul.

This photo is absolutely superb, the composition is first class as is the level of detail and colour contrasts. The sun shining through on the horizon is just a marvelous extra touch.

This picture is absolutely amazing!!!

Another superb image!
The upper part of the image is very foreboding with excellent detail and contrast in the sky. The rays of light coming down are a phenominal- you really could not ask for more.
Unbelieveable detail in the forground. This image reminds me of Adam Burton's work (a compliment).
All the best Emmanuel!

magnifique composition, de très beaux détails dans l'avant plan et ces rayons qui transpercent les nuages ajoutent une très belle ambiance.

Nice, nice ! beautiful foregroud with brillant colours, and dark thus luminous sky. But the ND grad is too visible on the picture and darkens the sky too much imho. Maybe you should try to lighten it up then adjust the light rays localy.
