Photographer's Note

This shot was taken on the Isle of Skye. I remember the drive we took on the A863, the weather was unpredictable with storms punctuated by dazzling sunshine. The landscape looked magical but the dynamic range of the light was challenging to say the least. This is the best image that I managed to capture and as you can see the brilliant light on the loch is overexposed. This is a case for HDR photography and skillful processing but I share it with you because I was enchanted by both the view and the storm clouds over the mountains.

If anyone has experience of dealing with such challenging light, I would love some pointers!

In the foreground you can see Gesto Farm with its early to mid-19th century U shaped court of farm buildings. Loch Harport lies beyond the farm and the cloud-covered Cuillins in the far distance.
