Magical Mooring ...

By sut68      
Another from a great day out on Saturday on the Rowardennan meet. Team W.A.S.P. were on a mission to capture some light ... but even we were amazed at what we got on a couple of occasions [ yesterdays post being one of them].

This was at Loch Leven, just outside of Glencoe. Shortly after we packed up, the wind got up and ruined the calm waters ... great timing methinks.

Right, going to be mad busy again today, so will catch up when I can. Cheers for dropping in Smile

Cheers everyone, was absolutely blown away with the light we had 'pre-arranged' for here Wink ... this just had a 2 stop ND grad and that was it, the conditions were great on and off for about 45 minutes, so expect 'one-or-two' more Smile

Just added another one too. Been about 2 months since I last gave one out, but I felt I needed to pick one from the Rowardennan shots and this is one that impressed straight off the back of the camera and I still think it deserved more.
