Two oldies from the Isle of Skye

Recommended Posts

Missing being there, I dug out two oldies from my Leica SL days taken both in 2017 on the Isle of Skye. Both images taken with Leica SL< Voigtlander 15mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters.

After a day of constant rain the skies opened, rewarding our perseverance with an amazing sunset at Elgol. 3 seconds exposure for this one:

The iconic view at Neist Point, Isle of Skye, showcased in a different composition. ⁠This, on the other hand, is a 36 seconds exposure:

Thank you for viewing, best regards

Stunning as always!  I must get to Neist Point (and the lighthouse) next time I'm in the Highlands.

Thank you very much indeed Graham, that is very kind of you to say! :) Yes, Neist Point is always worth a visit, and so is a hike down to the lighthouse, when the light is right for it, the climb back up is worth the pain! :D 

Best regards,

Hello wavier I, outstanding images as always, dear friend.

Hello Louis, I am not sure who "wavier I" is or what it means - autocorrect at its best I assume! :D - seriously, thank you very much my friend, good to see you! Hope you are doing great :) Best regards,

      as you have probably read the "title" you might already have an idea what my Problem is, but im going to give you a bit of background story. I hope its goint to make it more understandable.
      So i got my leica SL 1-2 Years ago. Since then i have updated the Firmware some times, since the 3.4 Update, i didn't do any updates. So a few days ago, i updated it, and lets just say, it wasn't the smartest decision. It locked the MC-21 out (which previously worked), and also some other lenses, i borrowed from a friend also didn't work.
      So now, is there any way i can like downgrade it? I tried "updating" to an older version but i just got an error.
      Please, if someone knows a solution to the problem, i would be very glad to hear it

      THANKS in advance!!

      Dear Leica Forum Comunity,
      i got my Leica Sl over 1 Year ago, and it might sound crazy, but i only used 3 EF-lenses Adapted to it. After some thinking, I decided to get some new glas, namly L mount glas. As much as i would love to get Leica lenses, i simply can not afford it. So i looked arround what i could use. I now come to a point were i have to make a decision. Is it more worth it to get Sigma glas, or more to get older R-lenses and adapt it to the SL.
      It would be great if someone could tell their experience using either of them on the SL
      Thanks for your replies

      The new firmware for L lenses is available, but won't install on my SL2... 🤪

      Loch Lomond is a beautiful loch, and I love to stop there on my way from Glasgow to Glencoe & the Isle of Skye, when I have a chance. Here a sunset on the Loch, a 1/5 second photograph taken in 2018 with my (then) Leica SL, Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters:
