Ian Cameron


Rannoch moor, Glencoe, Scotland

If in doubt it's not a bad idea just to remember that photography's literal translation is to "write with light", with that in mind I opted to just concentrate on the amazing almost holy display of light rays that had managed to burst its way through a thick covering of cloud over the moor. The contrast range of course is huge but by concentrating on the illuminated areas the tonal range of the area photographed is reduced to just about manageable amounts. Hot spots in reflection have been reduced by careful positioning of boulders a technique I use quite frequently to make a high contrast scene kinder on the eyes.

the exposure renders the shot almost completely monochrome which finishes the incredibly tranquil mood...+V
