These are the stones of Callanish (stationary not Rolling). Think Stonehenge with heather and single malts. The air is so clean up here you almost feel dizzy if you take a deep breath, as if it has been super-oxygenated.
It might sound ridiculous, but both Andy and I commented on how the stones seem to have a strength or power emanating from them ( in much the same way as it doesn’t from David Cameron.)
Also a view of our trusty workhorse, a Panasonic AG-AF101 which has a 4:3 sensor, almost 35mm sized, and we are using a variety of fast 35mm lenses and Panasonic Lumix lenses. The uncompressed images feed into an Atomos Ninja which records them at 200 Mbps.
We went back to our hotel for a late breakfast and now we’re off to film the next subjects on the list!
All the stills I am sending I’ve shot on my iPhone 4s (with which I am really impressed). The stones shot earlier I played with on my photoshop ap and a few secs later sent to you. It’s like having a computer in your pocket!
