Bow-Fiddle Rock (Black+White)

A classic view – the strong angular shape of Bow Fiddle with rock-pools in the foreground, Portknockie.

This was a real blighter of a shot to make. Even with the tripod legs not very extended and wedged into crevices in the rockpool, the wind was such that even a few seconds’ exposure was impossible. Added to this, the light seen here was so transient, it blossomed to optimum golden-yellow on the stone and vanished again within the course of about 10 seconds.

Black+white conversion: Ilford PanF-50+ simulation in the Gimp.
