Gone West, Life is Peaceful Here

In Ullapool early to catch the sunrise.

The ferry can be seen closing the distance.

I found these levers onboard. I wonder if it plays a sea-shanty too?

Point, on Lewis, comes into view.

Some beautiful photos there again aktoman; particularly liked the 3rd, 4th and 5th from the top.

You're definitely providing some much needed inspiration to me to get out with my camera.

Thanks, JP. I wasn't too happy with many of the images. Wishing I'd taken the ND filters with me. I'll need to start shooting in RAW. I've only tried it once, and couldn't figure out what to do. The new mag, PhotoPlus, has info on that aimed at beginners like me, so I've no excuse now.

Sunshine shots all taken via a Hama polarising filter. I've left the levels untouched on most, others just had contrast increased.

As to inspiration, feedback from people is providing me with inspiration to go and get better. It is the opposite of a vicious cycle: a virtuous cycle?

I think 'sgoth' is Gaelic for cloud! What a great description for a lovely little boat!

Aye, it was fairly skiting through the waves.
