A rather murky day but you have handled it very well. The two telegraph poles are well sited to frame the rocky pinnacle. Good management of the light as I said with agreeable soft colours and very good clarity.

Hi Ike,not lucky with the weather this time,but it's still possible to watch the silhouette of the big rock on the top. A new thing for me this place,very interesting and taken in the best way as possible. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

I remember you relating how quickly the weather changed when you were on Skye and this photograph confirms your words!
There is lovely evidence of autumnal colours in the lower sections of the photograph, whilst the heights, including the Old Man of Storr, is shrouded by mist. Strong weather contrasts in the same photograph!
My warm regards,

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Cette composition est parfaite pour retranscrire l'ambiance de la campagne écossaise et particulièrement sur cette terre insulaire.
J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance qui se dégage de cette composition.

I like the effect of the fog on the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the mountains. Well done, have a nice day.

The low dark clouds only cover the sky and don't much hide the view of the hill and the characteristic tall rocks. There is a nice connection between the two rocks on top of the hill and the two electricity poles below the hill. As in other photos you have shown the dark tones of green, brown and orange are very attractive.

Hello Ike, the mistiness simply adds to the atmosphere of your picture.
I like the shapes of the rocks emerging/disappearing into the mist.
The rough terrain in the fg gives us a flavour of the countryside.
Even the telegraph poles do not detract from your scene.

ike hello...really nice work here for us..nice and moody feel to this scene..what a scene! tfs. dale
mcmtanyel (29732) 2017-04-20 19:41
In both instances, the fog did not want to show you the whole of the Old Man. That's alright, I like the mystery the fog adds.
CLODO (35954) 2017-04-20 23:20
There is a nice tyriangle with the 2 electric poles and the old man, still standing up whatever is the weather! Nice brownish hues

High voltage for the Old Man. A well chosen juxtaposition of ancient natural shapes and the poor influencing by humans.
Have a nice weekend!

Spectacular scene with those interesting rocks and the fog surrounding them. A typical scene from Scotland. Good shot!

Belle série avec celle sur le lien , d'un POV différent qui me plait, les teintes du paysage avec la brume sur le haut couvrant le haut des rochers, belle image
GyurMaster (7641) 2017-04-21 2:23
Marvelous landscape even if the main subject is hidden in the fog.
ChrisJ (118961) 2017-04-21 4:17
The distant craggy peaks with their odd rock formations resemble a lunar landscape. The fog adds mood & atmosphere. The 2 fg telegraph poles nicely frame the tallest pinnacle. Tfs!

Hello Ike ,
I like this original capture of the famous landmark of Skye . Partially in the mist , the main subject becomes the two poles and the fence in the brown field in the FG .
carlo62 (55776) 2017-04-21 15:25
il paesaggio è molto caratteristico anche senza la nebbia, ma in questo caso l'atmosfera è diventata quasi surreale.
emka (107819) 2017-04-23 23:39
The morning fog adds to the mysterious atmosphere. And the sky has some colour, so it was not so bad. I couldn't see anything :(, it was raining. Lovely view of this iconic rock.
