Blackrock Cottage


Nikon D70 @ 27mm, 1/40 sec, f/9, ISO 200

I had planned to get up at 4 a.m. this morning to try and catch a sunrise somewhere in Glencoe. That certainly didn't happen - I was enjoying my sleep way too much. However, I still managed to get up there eventually, albeit about 10 hours later than planned.

The weather was quite bad (damn those weather forecasters always getting it wrong). But it was a good bad if you know what I mean - the kind where the clouds are dark and every now and again a little sunlight slips through.

This shot was taken at the end of my session. I got out my car, set up the tripod and within the time it took to do that I was absolutely covered in midges. Bugger this I thought, so I returned to my car only to find that I had left my window down. Bah. The good thing was that I preferred the composition from the car anyway, so I just sat waiting for some nice clouds and light, put the window down and took the shot.

Although, I didn't always remember to wind the window down :)

Sky is about to rain
Earth is about to wet
Frogs are about to out

Before that...
Photography is over.
