Soothing Cuillin

By Tynnwrlluniau  
My last posts track my journey - nothing from two days in Glencoe where blizzard conditions prevailed, brief fair weather to gain a view of the Five Sisters and then evening at Eilean Donan. On the Thursday morning I was blessed with pink skies at dawn and had just enough time to reach a spot I have scouted in the past. I find the falls at Sligachan difficult to frame and this was about the best composition I've managed so far. Let me know what you think.

I was there in March and I felt the same Alun..very difficult to compose without standing in the middle of the river.

Good composition as any more would be too complex, so just right. That pink mist really contributes a lot to this rare beauty of a wild place. TG

Beautiful scene. The ruggedness of the rock and f/g and the mystery in the mountains with the lovely mist. Stunning image.

A good flow of water, snow on the tops and I reckon you must have been on tip toe atop the rocks here to get the angle.

Nice work, worth all the frustration of weather in Scotland.

Was at this location last week and agree it is not easy to compose, but you certainly have got a high view point Alun
