Another from my wee wander up the burn at Sligachan. this wee set of falls is a favourite location of mine, and Slig turned it on again. You can...
Another pair from my wander up the Allt Dearg in late September, both around the wee set of falls, one before the sun rose on the falls, and one...
Ok so I couldn't resist the title :-)
Sligachan falls at sunset, and yes it was as cold as it looks! A gorgeous spot that always looks better with a dusting of snow lying about the place, there was a lot less than last year trip but still enough to pick the Cuillin range out in the scene.
It was quite windy here so I was conscious of a lot of the heather at the edges of the frame moving throughout the exposure time which can end up looking really messy if there's enough of it... so a low perspective was preferred with the cottage missing and the Cuillins just emerging overlooking everything and the lone tree being brought to life with the last of the days light behind it.
This is the second one of these that I have posted from this location, shot back in Feb, this one requiring slightly less contortionistic skills!
I was struggling to think of a suitable title for this one, but it just says 'Scottish Highlands' to me, one of the scenes that definitely epitomises this area of the UK.
A nice wee dusting of icing sugar on the top of the Cuillin too, not too much, not too little, but more than enough to add contrast.
Looking at my ISO for this one I can only think I used 400 to bump up the shutter speed (with a 3 stop filter on) for one slow enough the get the water movement I wanted, but to minimise or cull the dreaded messy heather movement in the scene as it was pretty windy out this evening.
Another from my morning wander up the Allt Dearg, taken from the same spot as yesterday's post, but it is a different shot
