Isle of Skye Trip Part 2

Due to the weather on my recent 3 day trip to Skye I spent more time shooting with my Nikon’s than my M2P or M2.In fact the shots from Neist Point Lighthouse were shot flat on my stomach as I could hardly stand in the wind and hold a camera steady (tripod just kept blowing over!).

Neist Point - Nikon Z6 - 1/500 sec @ f8, 200iso.

Sligachan Old Bridge - Nikon Z6 - 1/250 sec @ f8, 200iso

Skye Bridge - Nikon Z6 - 7 image manual HDR at f10, 100iso.

Sunset at Kensaleyre Church, Skye - Nikon Z6 - 1/500 sec @ f13, 200iso.

Eilean Bàn (‘White Island’) Former home of author Gavin Maxwell - Nikon Z6 - 1/640 sec @ f8, 100iso, 3 image pano.

Amazing photos, John. Absolutely stunning. Brings back memories of my trip up there last year when we hired a motorhome (between the lockdowns). Would love to go back someday.

Everyone warned me of them before our trip last year but TBH we were never bothered by them. Maybe the time of year or they just didn’t like us :joy:. I do believe they can be pretty brutal though!

Outstanding images, I am on Skye in November, hoping to get my M2 up and about, but not holding out to much hope, having been to Skye before, and knowing how much of a wind magnet the place is, I have just bought my M2 so still in the early stages of learning, had a couple of flights, got some decent shots, not much of a video man, but will try to learn as I have seen some awesome footage, that has wet my appetite

Thanks Malcolm :+1: Skye is an amazing place, but yes it’s usually pretty windy. I’m hoping to get back up there again in November too.

Thanks Steve, yes definitely worth a visit if you can make it :+1:

Brilliantly captured John. Imagine what you could do with perfect weather conditions. Thanks for sharing.
