Wailing widow falls, Assynt
« on: August 14, 2017, 09:40:40 PM »
 I must apologise for not posting anything for a while. I had been using photobucket (still do) to share image to here and it is so frustrating and slow i couldn't be bothered trying to get it to work.

I felt it was about time i did stick with it and get something posted.

Wailiang widow falls in Assynt from a trip up that way earlier on in the year.







and a final shot from Ardnamurchan lighthouse. We spotted this big splash as the waves crashed into a chanel in the rocks and figured it could make a decent/ dramatic image. Waited ages for some big waves like we had seen but they never happened plus the blue sky doesn't real add anything. This was the best we got

Really like #2 Chris.

Thumbs up!
There are people who actually think LENS stabilization is better than sensor shifting!

My pick would be the last one with the slanting lighthouse :grin: followed by the first one.  That gush from the front rock leads the eye up through it....john

I think I would have preferred a shorter exposure for the lighthouse image. Thinking of how impressive it would have been to have that framing and subject with a big wave breaking showing the water....

Thanks guys. I tried straightening the lighthouse and this was the best i could get (damned wide angle lenses), maybe a 2 shot vertical pano with a longer focal length will sort that out next time. It's a bit of a trek away out there but i need to go back when there's some cloud around so i can get some better shots of the area.
There were lots of big waves crashing in, when we went down we got 2, this being the best of them.

Nice set Chris (as always).

My favourite is the first, but I want to see the top of the waterfall! (Agree with John that the foreground rocks / water works well as a lead in to the falls).
