As I said there'll be some more photos from Scotland, this is round two and I start with another shot from Elgol. I went for a 5x4 here since this focuses more on the sunset and the part of the sky where the beautiful clouds were.

This is kind of a shot I had envisioned for my Elgol trip all along, I wanted a photo with the sun still in the frame just before it left behind the mountains. I havn't seen many photos of this place with the sun in the picture. The clouds are nicely lit here and also the rocks in the foreground and that structure to the right get their share of sunlight.

I used a Polarizer, a Lee 0.9 ND and a Lee 0.6 hard GND here + I blended in one exposure for the really bright parts and one for the stones to get a balanced exposure all over. It was quite some postprocessing there but after the blending it was straight forward. The colors and the light were just perfect and there was not much to do there ;-)
