The scenery of West Scotland: Waterfall

We’ve just returned from a family holiday in West Scotland. We were staying near Oban and the scenery was so spectacular I simply couldn’t leave my camera alone. This photograph of a waterfall is just one of many images I took during our stay.

A photograph taken of a waterfall near Loch Etive in Argyll and Bute.

I increased the exposure time for this image to blur the water as it ran over the falls. I’ve used this technique many times in the past, but generally with greater success at night time.

The picture was taken while Mrs Adams and I took the kids out for a walk near Loch Etive. It was a beautiful spot and I like the way you can see the water tumbling over the rocks.

If you want to see more landscape images taken during our stay, you might want to pay a visit to my Instagram account. I’ll also be publishing a few more images from our stay on the blog in the very near future.

      Thanks Mary. I was hoping to get one of two images of the landscape reflected in a loch as well, but sadly, it wasn’t sunny enough.

      I see you did head over to Instagram! Loch Awe is also a delightful spot if you ever find yourself in the area.

      Didn’t get bitten by midges once. Surprising how much time I spent outside.

      Yes, the scenery, especially in West Scotland is just amazing. My camera didn’t get a break at all.

      We had a great break Louise. It was also a marvellous and very photogenic spot.

      It is very difficult. Truth is, I still don’t think it is quite correct in this pic but it’s not far off.

    What a wonderful shot, I love the water. Looks like you had a fab holiday, can’t wait to see more pics. #MySundayPhoto
