Moody Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland

There had been a sprinkle of snow the night before, although I was hoping that it had been more than that. The hillside looked a bit dirty with all this dark green surface protruding through the snow. Still, I decided to head up to the top as there was some interesting cloud formation lingering above the sea.

At first look I didn’t like the picture in colour and thought of shooting it with black and white in mind. All this was going to change as I saw the file on the large 27” screen; it looked much better in colour, although there was not much colour in it. The colour version brings out the mood of the place in a much better way.

Was the over 1 hour walk to the top of the Old Man of Storr worth it? Most definitely.
