Behind The Lens

Location
Talisker Bay, Isle of Skye, Scotland
Time
Approaching sunset
Lighting
I had to work very quickly to capture the sun in exactly the right place as due to 2 burst tyres on the car we arrived here late
Equipment
Nikon D810, Nikon 14-24, NiSi S5 system, Nisi 150mm polariser, Nisi 150mm 2 stop medium grad filter
Inspiration
Going back to Scotland again, this time the fantastic Talisker Bay, Isle of Skye. I was lucky to get this image as we had got here later than we would have liked due to Mike's car unfortunately getting 2 punctures from a massive pothole the previous day and the resulting need to be recovered from Portree to Broadford to the only place that had 2 tyres the right size.. Complete nightmare but at least there were 2 tyres on the Island that fitted or it could have been a whole lot worse....! When we got here after a walk on a path that was more like 'ice rink' the sun was already really low and I had to work really quickly to try and get it 'bursting' against the cliff in the gap between the sea stack. All fingers and thumbs I managed to drop my polariser several times, somehow it landing on sand (thankfully) each time instead of on the big rocks dotted all around the place. But it all worked out and I'm pleased with this one, we managed quite a few shots from this location as even after the sun had dropped the light remained decent for quite a while, followed by a really stormy sky that rolled in after sunset, amazingly no kit broken at this location, which is getting increasingly rare for me !
Editing
Basic RAW process in Photoshop CC, local contrast adjustments, dust spot cloning
In my camera bag
2 x Nikon Bodies on longer trips, D810 / D750. Nikon 16-35 f/4, Nikon 14-24 f/2.8, Nikon 24-120 f/4, Nikon 70-200 f/4. Full set of NiSi filters
Feedback
Arrive as early as possible to get set up, we got here later than I'd have liked today and caused me to rush a little, thankfully it worked out.
