    My grandmother used to say about storms, “If you can find enough blue sky to make a man’s shirt tail, the storm will be over.” Funny the things our elders used to say. I can hear her voice right now looking at this beautiful picture! Thank you for this.

  9. Any PhotoShop there, Utham? Isn’t Scotland AWESOME? It’s one of the places Chic and I regretted never having travelled to, on account of its stunning scenery, all those people speaking in Scots accents (LOVE it!) and its tradition. Now it’s too late; so I must enjoy imagery such as this. Thanks heaps!

    • This is one one picture for which I did minimum editing.
      Just cropped and tweaked the contrast a bit.
      I was planning to brighten the hills and the lake in Photoshop , but then ,
      I thought , it will reduce the beauty of the drama in the sky.

      Scotland is incredibly beautiful , M R.
      I would suggest you to make a trip .
      I am sure you will be delighted !

    January 5, 2014 at 11:43 am

    • :) ! More than being intimidated , I was wondering
      how small and helpless I am under such huge elements – clouds , hills and large lake !

      Thank you , Kim

      Best wishes for a vibrant New Year !

  16. Wow! And drama, it is, Utham! Beautiful scene altogether, especially with that sky! I hope all is well with you and your family. I haven’t seen you around so I came to discover where you went after the holidays! :-)

    January 20, 2014 at 2:08 am

    • I am really touched by your concern , George !

      Thank you ! Thank you soooooooo much, George , for the visit and kind words !

      I am on a holiday trip now – into a short safari trip in India – just to get a taste of wild life photography ,something I do not have any exposure . Internet access is rare here and the schedule is a bit busy. Will be back to regular blogging from 26th this month !

      Thanks again , George ! God bless !

  19. Good water detail. Did you use a split ND or graduated?

    January 24, 2014 at 11:51 pm

    • No , Allan .It was evening – arouund 8 pm in Scotland.
      Light was low , except for the sky . I boosted up the ISO.
      I was not satisfied with the exposure , especially for the hills.
      I thought of brightening up in editing software .
      But then , it may reduce the impact of the ‘ drama in the sky ‘ .
      So did not proceed.

      Sorry for the delay in response.
      I was away on a holiday trip.
