Helmsdale

The name of this region in the northwest of Scotland would fit well in one of the Lord Of The Rings films. When we drove through it, on our way to Orkney earlier this year the landscape itself also reminded us of scenes from those films: lonely, wide ranging views, desolate, beautiful. The faded purples and browns of the vegetation confirmed that autumn was on its way. We needed to be on time for the ferry, so did not have the time to go for a walk, but when I spotted this view from the road I pulled over and walked some way towards the railway line.

I also combined three bracketed exposures into an HDR image to bring out the dramatic sky more.
