A couple of year’s ago, my wife and I visited Scotland for an all too short 12 days. It was a wonderful vacation that afforded us many great things to see and experience. One of these locales is in the next couple of photos…
As we were leaving the Isle of Skye toward Inverness, it was recommended that we take a detour to see Plockton. This picturesque town, that looks to belong in a much more temperate zone than the highlands of Scotland.
Of course, it helped that the weather was absolutely perfect for the end of May, which gave us beautiful blue skies.
Plockton is very much a tourist attraction, because of its beauty and palm trees; it was used as the backdrop for the BBC Scotland series Hamish Macbeth, about a local police constable in the fictional town of Lochdubh.
As you can tell from these photos, the detour was well worth it.
Both of these shots were taken with a Canon EOS 5D MkIII and 24-105mm f/4L lens. I used the in-camera HDR processing capability for each of these shots. They were both taken at f/14 and 1/500 second at 400 ISO.
Hope you enjoy these images.
