...continuing my tour around Glencoe, I arrived at the tiny falls on the river, another favourite spot with Stob Dearg sitting behind. The reflection was something I had hoped for since I passed Loch Tulla on the way here, which was flat calm too.

A stunner, it never looks un dramatic no matter what time of year, time of day etc or weather conditions prevail.


Just one of those iconic but powerful scenes. A little like a stunning woman really, always on top form !!!! Smile


Cheers my friend.

Strong composition, with a pleasing sort of natural symmetry. I like the way the line of the reflection is echoed by the shapes in the foreground rock, and the water ripples.

'Morning Dougie. I'm still here!
This one's a cracker. The gravel and rocks mirror the parts of the sky that are not actually reflected in the water.......if you know what I mean!

I've just checked out yesterday's view of the Buachaille from your pf - and I think I like this one even better. Perhaps it's due to the rocky foreground and the particular tones of the mountainside. In any case, a total delight!
