I was rewarded with wonderfully atmospheric misty images during an early morning excursion to Loch Earn in the heart of Perthshire.
Trees near the world-famous Gleneagles Hotel looming through the mist. This was my first outing with the fantastic Nikon 45mm tilt + shift lens; by “shifting the lens” I was able to avoid the keystone affect normally encountered when pointing a camera up to take in a tall subject.

Love the simple but strong triangular composition linking the boulders and the clump of trees. Using the LEE “Big Stopper” to extend the exposure time added to the sense of calmness in the already still waters of Loch Earn; while a degree or two of tilt ensured front to back sharpness in the image.
