The Falls of Dochart are at the confluence of the rivers Dochart and Lochay at Killin. Killin is a very small and charming Scottish village with a charming bridge that dates from 1760. It is situated at the end of Loch Tay, a freshwater Loch in Perthshire. Measuring 14.5 miles long and 1-1.5 miles wide it is known for the quality of its salmon fishing.

The tree in its autumn foliage makes a splendid focal point in this cleverly framed composition. I like the lighting and the excellent rendering of the textural detail. The motion in the fast running waters of the river is well captured.

Hello Ann - The weather may not be what you wish for up in Scotland but here you have a beautiful shot. I find it really atmospheric as it conveys the 'feel' of the location and weather very well. I think what works here is the autumn-tinted foliage. It contrasts well with the greys of the rock and the background trees. There is excellent separation between the focal point tree and those in the background too. Everything about this shot pleases me, it's a beauty! Enjoy your holiday, I envy you Scotland it's magical. Warm regards rosemary

beautiful autumn composition!
The dynamic of the fast-flowing water contrasts well to the calmness of this beautiful tree,which is here also an eye-catching focal point.It´s bright,vivid colors stands out beautifully against the darker BG.
It all makes your shot not only beautiful,but also very atmospheric.
Have a nice sunday

a lovely autumnal shot this, so simple in concept but a supreme example of less being more. Romantic with the waters rushing over the the textured surfaces here giving it both atmosphere and spectacular appeal. Beautiful!
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.

This is a very fine shot of the Falls of Dochart! I've taken quite a few of this place but have never come up with a decent shot because I've always tried to get in the wider view. This more "concentrated" view with a slightly longer lens is far better than many shots of these falls. I'm guessing that you took this from the bridge although you can hop over the low dyke on the other side of the bridge from the town and walk over these flat outcrops of rock.
The little tree in its autumn colours is simply delightful and it occupies just the right place in the frame, standing out colourfully and beautifully against the dark rocks and the flowing water. The water is white too - not that horrid dirty grey which so often seems to be the case in pictures I take!
Lovely light and colours, good composition, perfect exposure and, as always, exquisite details and sharpness.
Enjoy the rest of your trip and I'll see you very soon!

Lovely autumnal detail. This yellow tree looks beautiful on the contrasting dark background.

The yellow colours of the tree is perfectly positioned in the picture, against the darker colours of the rock and the forest. The water is also a fine part of this picture.

Fantastic views and capture of the components of the image with all this gold on a small island in the middle of the river
Nice colors and contrast
I saw this capture attracted by the location , Stirling, where I was some years ago to visit the castle

Ce petit arbre aux couleurs d'automne donne un éclat de couleurs lumineuses aux paysage, j'aime la puissance de l'eau autour du rocher, très jolie présentation

Nice autumnal colours contrasting well with the darker background colours. Colours that were so obviously in abundance in Scotland had we had the light to see them!
Hope you have a safe journey home and that the weather does not disrupt your flight.

This is superb beautiful autumnal shot executed perfectly with great exposure, clarity and sharpness. The yellow tonality of this small tree looks charming and makes the scene eye-catching. Like it! TFS.

Really beautiful and a different autumn shot! I really like the way you framed this little tree on the rocks- its tonalities realy stand out. The textures of the rocks and the movement of the water add a lot. You managed light very well! Good quality shot!
