Julie at the Gauldrons

I have been spending a lot of my weekends at Campbeltown this year, but still haven’t seen all of the main local geographical attractions. My dear colleague Catherine who lives there had recommended the Gauldrons some time ago, but I only remembered her suggestion today. Julie kindly showed me this amazing place, and I have to say I am totally impressed. This might just be my favourite place on the Kintyre peninsula so far. We saw another seal when parking the car, and a lovely encounter with what was probably a Mink later. We just sat enjoying the landscape for half an hour before the cameras even left our bags. This first picture shows Julie against the dramatic bay of the Gauldrons.

This picture was our first deliberate attempt to capture the now more obvious baby bump!

This one was a quick landscape with my beloved 28mm prime Sigma. On the Canon 7d, more or less a normal view like the 50mm was on older SLR film cameras.

These next two images were handheld HDR’s using my Sigma 10-20mm zoom, wide. On the 7d this is 16mm equivalent. Three bracketed exposures were taken handheld at high speed to minimise movement between them and they were processed in my favourite “Photomatix” HDR software helped by the “Lightroom” plugin.

 

A beautiful place, you should go there sometime.
