    Ferry from Stornaway to Ullapool

    I saw Donald's posts from Ullapool and especially the ferry picture and thought that for my first post on the forum I would show a few pictures taken from that ferry. We were touring in Scotland for almost 3 weeks in September, driving a big loop from Glasgow to Mull and Skye, the outer Hebrides from Barra to Lewis and then north to the Orkney Islands and back to Glasgow via Edinburgh.

    First ferry out of Stornaway

    The ride to Ullapool oscillated between heavy rain and a lovely sunrise

    There was snow in the mountains south of Ullapool (An Tealloch?)

    I suspect that Donald was standing somewhere in this scene when he took his shot of the ferry.

    Thank you for looking.

    The lighting on the mountains in the last one is very interesting Wernerg.

    What about cropping out from the top and bottom to emphasize that?

    MilTOs, I was trying to avoid a pano look but you are right, it does work better,

    I normally don't like to have land floating on water but it is almost unavoidable shooting from a ferry.

    Lovely picture, Werner.

    I hope you don't mind me putting in this link to my picture of the ferry, so that folks know what we're talking about.

    I think you are right. That is An Teallach. There is actually a little micro brewery at the bottom of that. I was drinking the beer from there when i was up in Ullapool last week.

    You really did take in the very best of Scotland in that trip you made. I hope you enjoyed it and that you'll tell lots of folks to come.

    Love that translucent light and the golds and blues that the Highlands and islands do so well.

    Really nice shot Werner

    Thank you for commenting Donald and Daisy Mae. I looked at Donald's ferry picture again and realize that you shot from the north side of the harbor looking south, probably the same scene that I shot.

    It was a great trip. We've done a lot traveling since we retired but this was one of the best. Despite all my whining about the weather (and the single track roads) during the trip, it never stopped us from doing anything and produced some of the loveliest light that I've ever seen.
