River Findhorn and Loch of Blairs

Fortunately SWMBO had a last minute change of plan that gave me the opportunity to meet up with Steve (Stoates) on his planned visit to the River Findhorn by Randolph's Leap. We spent a good while at the river before heading to Loch of Blairs in the hope of some sunset action.

1. River Findhorn:


2. Steve has a phrase for this kind of photo manipulation - not repeatable here:


3. I then became fixated on this arrangement of leaves and a feather:


4.


5.


6. The boat house at Loch of Blairs has seen better times:


7.


8. The light was fading by the time this pair of signets caught our attention:


9. We hung around for the sunset but nothing much happened in the way of colour (in the sky):


All in all an enjoyable day out

Thanks for looking

Cracking series of shots Iain.

It looks like you're seeing some stunning Autumn colours up there.

Stunning set of photos Iain.

No.1 really stands out for me closely followed by No.4, beautiful tones / trxtures and colours.
