16 Apr Radio Silence Ends

Source: The Lightweight Photographer

I want to start by apologising for my radio silence over the past couple of weeks. The first week I didn’t post was Good Friday.  But then last week, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh passed, and it just didn’t seem right to be posting. I hope you understand.

Of course, the other problem that I’m also trying to contend with is that I haven’t been out to do any photography. Looking back through my archives, the last time I did any photography in April was 2019 with a trip to Scotland. Looking back, I now find even some of my second-rate images that I dismissed at the time, appealing.

Along the coast of the Scottish Highlands

I wish I could tell you more about this shot, but I can’t. It’s somewhere in the Scottish Highlands along the coast. It was around 5pm in the afternoon so still a few hours away from sunset but the light on the sea loch was wonderful. I remember using quite a strong filter to tame the highlights, but I didn’t make a note (argh!). I suspect it was a reverse ND graduate so I’m going to claim that. The camera was a Fuji XT3 with Fuji 16-55 lens at 16mm. I can’t recall if I used a tripod but if I did it probably wasn’t necessary as the exposure is 1/450″ at f/11 and ISO160.
