This week I have been out in the landscape searching for Autumn Impressions.  After the success of last week, I decided to continue with using intentional camera movement to emphasise what I see as the essence of this beautiful season in Skye.  As I took the long walk around Skinidin, where I had captured my images to date, I was struck by the strong contrasts of colour in the heather – particularly vivid greens and pinks and blues.  So, I returned, armed with a new 70-200mm lens, and worked with slow shutter speeds.  I have a series of images I intend to show over the next few weeks as I start my PhD studies.

I have worked on these images in Lightroom – using cropping, enhancement of the tonal range, some converted to black and white and the use of different aspect ratios.  As I work on this project I am becoming more experimental in my work and the images more abstract as I continue my search for the ephemeral hiddenness of Skye.

It has been difficult choosing my favourite in this collection.  But my Image of the Week is chosen for the vivid colour palette and the sense of depth created by the movement of heather and grasses.
