With the aim of shooting some Scottish Landscapes in dynamic weather I started my trip to Great Britain in mid-November and traveled for about 5 weeks trough the country. My journey took me from the south coast of England via Northumberland to Scotland. In Scotland I traveled from the Isle of Skye to Caithness, Torridon and Assynt. As expected the weather conditions were very contrary (snow, sun, storm, rain). The exposed position at the Atlantic Ocean is responsible for the unpredictable weather in western Scotland. Often it’s possible to experience several seasons within one day. Although it often wasn’t very easy to keep my camera dry, I was rewarded with a variety of spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
In the second part of my UK-series 2013, I present the images of the Isle of Skye. The fascinating hills and the impressive coastline are typical for the Scottish landscape. The weather was as expected at the end of November – very rough. During my ten-day stay there was no day without rain and storm. But in the rare minutes when the sun showed the landscape turned into a fairy tale world and I was spectacular rewarded for the long rainy waiting times. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

Hiking the Pīpīwai Trail to the 400 ft Waimoku Falls brings the adventurer through the famous bamboo forest. Seeing this is quite an experience. The area is very densely populated with bamboo shoots that crowd out the light and sound it is hard to believe that anyone could get though this.
Yesterday morning we wanted to shoot Golden Gate early in the morning with Guillaume Desachy from a different perspective. We did about 30-45 min hike early in the morning to get to the point where we could see the bridge from a straight angle. I actually liked this slight unparallel view more showing the towers of the bridge elegantly...This is a single photo taken with Nikon D800, 70-200mm lens at (200 mm), f/10, Iso 160, and shutter 8 seconds.I used Lightroom and Photoshop to enhance the contrast.
thank you very much all, for your comments and faves...
Got some neat shots from a blizzard in 2010. The noise is actually mostly snow - my first blizzard, it was pretty crazy
Update: Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation! FrozenStarRo for suggesting it and Elandria for featuring!
