Prehistoric by PastyGuy Prehistoric by PastyGuy

An old image that has been sitting on my website for quite a while but with the praise I had received for it I thought it best to submit it here. Back to 2008 when myself and =Alex37 visited the isle of Skye this was the later visit of the two treks up to the Old Man of Storr on the north west of the island, after an exhausting hike to the Old Man in the early hours we were both greeted with low cloud obscuring any views of the valleys and coastline beyond let alone the Storr itself. As the sun rose the cloud began to clear as well as 'magic hour' however I was lucky enough to make the most of the available light and strong shadows and found a great view of the rugged Storr. The image is a stitch of four images.

Location

Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland

What an utterly splendid shot of a superb landscape. I love the different angles of the jutting rocks on the right-hand side.
I was browsing through the "NatureScapes" group gallery and this thumbnail popped out immediately. I think the praise you got for it on your website is well-deserved.

Love the tones in this one mate. Also, the rexture in the foreground rocks and the sky is very interesting.
I'm not sure what it is about this image, but it draws me into the scene more than others I have seen of the same location.

I guess it's the same thing that pulled me in and to photograph it, I personally like the way the rocks and pool of water appear in the image gives it balance

Oh, so lovely! A definite fave.

I'm taking a painting class this semester and eventually we'll be doing a landscape painting--would you mind if I possibly used this as a reference photo? Of course I'd post so you could see and I'd give you credit for the original image :)

Thanks Steve, it's not the normal angle you see the Storr and yet I think it emphasises its unusual stature even more
