Photo Friday: Warm Light

It’s been a long time wish for me to visit the Old Man of Storr and about a week ago I finally got the chance even though it was a race against the weather and dwindling daylight but we made it to the car park with about two hours of daylight left and I raced up the trail ahead of Stacie as she was walking rather slowly due to her back injury acting up and when I reached the old man the horizon was turning awful dark so I hardly took time to stop but pressed on past the old man and up onto an exposed rocky outcrop where it looked like I might get a better vantage point. When I reached the summit and I stretched up as far as I could while shooting, without warning the wind and the snow hit me hard and nearly blew me clean over the edge but I managed to throw myself down the slightly gentler angled slope and within 30 seconds the view was gone and I was engulfed in a total whiteout, thinking there was no point in waiting round for more photo opportunity’s I started half running, half sliding down the slope trying not to get lost but within 5-10min the storm had blown over and I got reunited with Stacie as she was coming up the last steep section of the trail, after playing around in the snow for a short while it was time to head back down and the sky looked like it was on fire.

      Thanks Doug, it was a cool visit to a spectacular place, my photos do not justify the scenery but I had very challenging light and a short window of opportunity🙂
      It’s a place I can only highly recommend to visit if you’re ever near and I want to go back with a full day to explore😀

    “A Dane on Adventures” you are right about that, Poul🙂 I’m happy that you are still among us and didn’t fly away.
    All the best,
    Hanna
