    Fairy Pools

    Just back from 5 days in Western Scotland - mainly on the Isle of Skye.



    This is from the chain of waterfalls at Fairy Pools with the Black Cuillin Mountains in the background.

    I like the contrast between soft, ethereal waterfalls/pool and the sharp detail of the mountains/rocks. Your technique gives it an other-world intrigue with a beautiful result.

    Yes the isle of skye has a lot to offer....what doe you use to make the water look so smooth in the photo?

    I've taken many pictures of waterfalls and I think only once by accident it come out looking flush like that instead of just ''water'' if you see what I mean

    This was a 30 seconds exposure - using a 10 Stop Neutral Density filter to cut out the light and increase the exposure time.

    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    Great photo!

    The quality reminds me of the pictures from around the world that the folks at Microsoft include when they do a major update.
