Waterfall, Sligachan River, Isle of Skye

by mcrtchly

One of many waterfalls on the Sligachan River which flows between the Black and Red Cuillin mountains, Isle of Skye. Delighted that this photo was selected by Flickr for their daily Explore page. Flickr gets about 8.6m photo uploads a day, and select only 500 to showcase on their Explore page. This capture was taken at the end of a very wet and stormy day not long before the Covid-19 lockdown. Both of my K1 bodies are currently being repaired (shutter failure on one and anti-shake mechanism on the other). Looking to their return now that lockdown restrictions are easing.

Great - I love the bands of different light across the image, and this is one of those where the long exposure on the water really works well.

Agree. And your cloud formations add drama to the scene.

Thanks for all the kind comments. The light was fading fast so the photo needed some local processing using luminance masks to get this result. If there’s any interest then I might post the raw image for comparison
