Collection: Challenges 2017
Camera: Nikon D800

The Storr on the Isle of Skye is the remain of a massive ancient landslide. The 'Old Man' is a large (50 meters high) pinnacle of rock that stands high and can be seen for miles around.
Legend has it that the Old Man of Storr was a giant who had lived in Trotternish. When he died, his finger remained frozen in death, pointing at the sky.

Amazing, a ribbon with 'only' a 6.62 score. Never expected that. Thank you all for your votes and kind comments!

Love the capture of this place and hope to see it in person one day. Great capture and the clouds definitely added drama to this whole scene.

Well done Kees! This has the Kees signature all over it. I bet the stone towers are very impressive to see up close. Congratulations on the Red.

Yes, first I used the Graduated Filter tool in Lightroom and later on I used the GND filter in NIK Collection Software.


Fab work! Well done

Way to go Kees. Well done mate - that is a superb photo and you sure deserve that ribbon.

Thanks Paul. To be honest, I'm quite surprised to get a ribbon with a 6.6 in a FS. I expected it to end somewhere between 10th and 15th place. I think the scenery in this image is superb, but the light is off IMO. When I walked uphill to get the shot I had beautiful light and sun rays coming through the clouds, but nothing of this when I took the shot. So I wasn't too happy with the shot myself, but apparently I'm too critical ;-)

I've been busy googling my way through this Feb FS, so many beautiful landscapes to appreciate. And yet another! I need to put the Isle of Sky on the bucket list for sure...
