The Black Cuillins by marianne-lim The Black Cuillins by marianne-lim
Black Cuillins
Elgol, Isle of Skye, Scotland

After several days of rain and clouds and no sunsets or sunrises, we finally got SOMEthing at Elgol. Too bad the light was to the left, but it was good enough for me!

The Cuillins dominate the horizon in the Isle of Skye; it's hard to miss them from anywhere on the island.

The colours and the foggyness of the water makes the whole scene seem so full of magic. Like a totally different world. Awesome.

I love how this feels like a render from a 3d program, take that as a big compliment.
It looks a bit too good in a way, the far distant terrain is almost morphed into perfection in how far-distant-terrain should look like hehe.

Great capture here and a wonderful composition, nicely done!

Hi Louis, I don't know about 3am but we stayed at the Rosecroft B&B and the hostess understood that we might want to get up pre-dawn (around 5.30am or so) to go out and take photos. Can't hurt to ask I guess!

Lovely shot.. if the light was on the left did you get a wide, landscape shot? :)

I love that about the Cuillins, can even see them from up north at the Quiraing :D

Hey Dan, thanks! Yes, I think I did, but I didn't like it as much as this one with the seaweed at the bottom. I will have another look through my images though!
