Photographer's Note

Glen Brittle - Isle of Skye

A series of clear, cold pools and waterfalls formed as Allt Coir' a' Mhadaidh tumbles down from the foothills of the Black Cuillins into Glen Brittle.

The location of the Pools beneath the looming bulk of the Cuillins is wonderful, and the drama of the waterfalls and the sinuous beauty of the rock formations carved by the falling water give the Fairy Pools a magical feel.

The foreground stone is the anchor to this composition. I had a hard time positioning myself to get this close as I had to staddle over the gap of rushing water. Polarizing filter to enhance colour in the pool and Lee Grey grad 0.9 to help balance the sky.

Thanks for your comments on pervious posts BTW
