Just back from a week away. We stayed in the Glencoe area for the first few nights then moved over to Skye.

This image was taken today when we stopped off at Fairy Pools at Glenbrittle for the first time. As you can see, there wasn't much water so we will definitely be going back again when the water levels are up a bit.

Many thanks for your votes and comments on my last upload and special thanks to Mark (marktc) for the Guest Editor's Award.

Wonderful composition with layers of colour and interest.
Just back from Glencoe this week also.
Haven't been the The Fairy Pools yet!

Looks like a pristine rarefied air sort of place. A lovely textured scene. TG

Have to confess I've never heard of this spot but looks fascinating if rather rugged and chilly!

It does look cold Sue - but beautiful with the grass in its autumnal colours and the light dusting of snow.

What a beautiful place to take pictures Sue, and I think the Water level is just fine, if it where too much higher, it would cover some of what makes this image special and live up to its Name. (IMHO)
Welcome back, and I'm really looking forward to more images from your trip.

I see a troll hiding there, Sue. The two openings partially above the water are the eyes and a broad nose between. Vertical furrows on his forehead and bushy green hair above.

Though been to Glencoe and Skye, can't say I ever visited this area. It certainly looks very rugged - and chilly! A super capture, and excellently processed in your usual style, Sue. Love it Smile
