Strathspey Reel

By almiles    
Been away from the site for some time, sorry. Pressures of family life!
Loch Morlich in the Cairngorm National Park on a cloudy afternoon. It was a grey morning but with time the clouds built up then tattered in the wind. This created the conditions I needed with breaks in the clouds creating bright areas that jigged across the loch. I made several exposures but this was the only one where the light dancing on the loch partnered so pleasingly with the rocks. It reminds me of a ceilidh where the less willing standing at the edge are dragged into the reel and made to look good by an energetic partner.
