Cold Stream

By kit-monster    
On the way up Ben Lomond, we were distracted by an interesting little stream. The summit wasn't looking very promising, so I headed off with Ian, Becky, Brian and Robbie for some stream photography.

I was going to convert to B&W but felt it was actually unnecessary. I've added a toned variation to the mods.

Comments welcome.

I liked the first upload but they both have a mystical quality. K.

Good atmosphere in this Ed and I like that it isn't quite b&w. The little square light patch top left maybe a touch distracting but all in all another quality shot.

Oh supurb,

The little touches of colour really lift what initially looks to be a B&W. Love the zigzag composition too.

BTW I checked here and there are no DBA jobs going at the mo Sad

Great stuff - yet only a few clicks - doesn't make any sense.

Great decision to take the detour on your way up to Ben Lomond. Excellent image of the waterfall with a good exposure. Like the diffuse brilliance of the water over the dark rocks.
Great pleasure meeting you at Rowardennan.

Ed I just had to sit and look at this for ages. I can hear that spray and feel its iciness .. what a stunner of a shot. You're one of the people converting me to soft water too! those little streams rushing down with just enough detail to make them come alive.

Simply fab.

Hello Edward, sorry I missed you at Loch Lomond, it is fairly local for us so we just had a day visit to say hello to everyone...good exposure on the water and works fine in black and white.
