Photographer's Note

Another shot from my trip to Scotland last year. The late sun was just about to set in a cloud filled sky. A small gap in the clouds allowed this beam of light to shine horizontally on the horizon. I have never seen anything like it and I was lucky to capture a few shots of it. A difficult thing to capture correctly in an otherwise quite dark shot. I used ND Grads to expose the beam accurately as well as the foreground etc. Due to this, it was inevitable that the already dark sky would be darkened further by the filter. But I like the result. It helps to convey the mood.

F18, 1.6 secs, ISO 100
