Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 5 sec, f/22, ISO 200Previous
I picked up a few tourist information guides of Scotland the other day, to get some ideas of areas to shoot. I came across a picture of Kilchurn Castle and thought it would look great at sunrise.
But then I realised that sunrise is at 5.30am at the moment, and it would take me at least an hour and a quarter to get there. Oh well, better set my alarm for 4am then!
Well, my body isn't used to going to bed at normal hours, so I ended up only getting an hour and a half of sleep. Anyway, I thought, it will be worth it to get a nice sunrise.
The only problem was that when I got there the weather was sh!t
. I mean come on, I got up at 4am, the least you could do is supply me with some nice light. I'm not sure the sun ever did rise, but I definitely know that it rained. Good job I had my umbrella.
Anyway, I persevered and walked down to the shore. Took a quick picture to see how it would come out and was quite surprised with the result. Took a few more and eventually ended up with one that I was happy with.
I'm quite glad that the weather was bad - hopefully it's made for a more interesting shot.
