Taken on Saturday whilst out with Ken,(Dashbox). We visited Balquhidder, to see Rob Roy's grave and due to Ken's natural curiosity ( I thought he'd been abductedWink) he stumbled across a lovely waterfall situated just behind Balquhidder Parish Church. This is one of a few shots I took here.
My second from the Rowardennan Nov 07 meet.
C&C welcomed.

It's a fine shot, so I'd put the needles and basket weave stuff away for a little while yet Wink

Now there's a thought - photographing basket weavers as they sing karaoke. Pretty niche, mind you!

Lovely autumn scene. I would so love to visit Balquhidder. I have an ancester buried in that graveyard - a Laren McLaren who died in the 1600's. If you ever come across the grave, I'd love a photo of it. My brother, Laren visited there years ago, but didn't get a shot. He's named his cabin at a lake here in Alberta western Canada "Balquhidder." Have you ever seen the photos of it by Catriona Fraser?

Quote: I have an ancester buried in that graveyard - a Laren McLaren who died in the 1600's. If you ever come across the grave, I'd love a photo of it.

Kathy, there are many gravestones of the McLaren clan and their descendants. Apparently us MacGregor's were enemies of the MacLaren's - see here and here
Once excerpt made me laugh, and I quote:

Quote: The popular romantic picture of a Highlander as a huge, wild, hairy man with a bottle of whisky in one hand and a blood-dripping claymore in the other, heather growing out of both ears, and always in the face of battle, is a slight exaggeration. Certainly in times of nation strife, there would be regional involvement and there were clan feuds. One notable battle raged in and around the Balvaig in Balquhidder glen, all because a Buchanan of Leny had struck a McLaren wi' a dead salmon. Because the MacGregors weighed in against the intruders, who were massacred, the MacLarens were granted the privilege of entering the Church at Balquhidder before them a Sunday.

Why don't you send a PM to Dhanakosa who lives very near Balquhidder. I'm sure he'd be able to assist you.

Thanks for the comments and click, Kathy and everyone.

Ah - I remember my Fuji S2 and 24-70 f2.8 lens bouncing down the rocks and into this burn. Smashed to bits so they were.

If they'd survived, I'd have been happy to have taken a shot like this... not bad for a potential basket weaver !

Jacqueline, the shot is straight out of the camera - slight tweak with levels and sharpening prior to posting, but no influencing from me on the leaves.
