Oban harbour, Scotland. My Sunday Photo, 31 August, 2014, #MySundayPhoto

This is an image I’ve had hanging round for a short while that I’ve only just got around to editing. It was taken a few weeks ago on a family trip to Oban when we were up in Scotland.

The weather on this particular day was glorious. I watched as the ferry in the picture slowly made its way out to sea. When it was bang in the centre of the frame, I hit the shutter release. I thought it was framed perfectly by the sea, sky and land.

Followers of my Instagram feed might have noticed me post a similar picture on the day itself. It’s not the same image, the one I placed on Instagram was a quick snap taken on my iPhone while I took this with my camera.

Even if I do say so myself, the original of this picture is a great shot. It was taken in easy auto mode with little effort. Despite that, I couldn’t help making a few edits with PicMonkey. I’ve used the cross process filter. I’ve also sharpened the image slightly and increased the clarity a tiny bit.

I hope you like the picture. I also hope it does Oban justice. It’s a beautiful spot and I hope to return many more times in future.

    Loving the blues in the photo. Have never quite managed to make it to Oban for the diving but have heard its a beautiful spot πŸ™‚

  2. I love Oban, a place very close to my heart. I especially enjoy eating fish and chips looking out at the harbour and watching the ferries. Beautiful photograph.

  3. It appears we’ve both had the same thoughts this week. It looks likely a lovely place. So much detail and action in the sky

    Thank you for linking up

  4. It’s beautifully captured & a perfectly balanced shot – ferry smack-bang central, the landscape either side and the different shades of blue hues make this photo look really peaceful, and probably more like a painting because it is so perfect. But I love the clouds, 3D like in their effect. It’s a good capture #sundayphoto
