waiting for the fairy

By LesF  
Continuing the Skye uploads and one from the fairy pools, playing the waiting game for the light to hit the mountain face, waited for over an hour plus some, then good fairy brought a brief splash of light, thank you.

Thanks for taking the time to view.

The splash of light at the base of the mountain and the waterfall lifts an already excel;lent composition Les. I particularly like the clarity of the water in the foreground allowing the stones underwater to be seen.
