Going Dark….


A quick pit stop while driving south alongside Loch Ken as the sun was going down. By the time I took this shot the light was going fast and what looked like a fairly ordinary set of 5 exposures actually surprised me when I came to process it in Photomatix Pro, which just goes to prove that you only give up on an image after you have tried some processing on it.

In this view the 12 mile Loch was actually behind me. Don’t you find that when you are out walking with the camera, often the best view is the one you see when you turn around and look back.

Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.

  1. Brilliant shot, and I do agree with you regarding the “look back”, also when you look up…often we miss things at a higher level. I really like the B&W treatment to this photo. Perhaps it is just me but sunsets/sun rises always look stunning in B&W. Congrats John, well captured.
