I stopped off just outside Tobermorry on the Isle of Mull to capture some colourful architecture. Upon leaving I noticed this lonely tree and these fantastic cloud formations that I felt could really work within my overall composition. My first thought was:
"This could work well in B&W"
This shot was taken from the drivers seat of my convertible, with the roof down and the parking brake on. As usual for Scotland the weather changes every hour and I knew there was no way this image, with this lighting and these cloud formations could ever be replicated. I normally shoot long exposure (my preferred genre) but I knew a fast shutter speed was required here in order to exactly capture what the eye saw.
The Isle of Mull is easily accessable but it does require a ferry ride from Oban (on the West coast) in the good weather. While the Summer months are the peak tourist season, there's no specific best time (or season) to visit. As a photographer you'll capture scenes unique to this little corner of Scotland anytime of the year.
