FAIRY POOLS

Newer Older

I would suggest to anyone that is visiting Skye to spend some time walking here at Glen Brittle.There are loads of waterfalls along the walk and in places the water is the most unbelieveable,bright shade of green you could imagine.
Once again the imposing Cuillin's provide the backdrop and on this occassion their peaks were mostly hidden under an ever descending blanket of cloud.If the sky looks like this when you park up remember the brolly,i spent ages underneath mine :)
I've a few more shots to upload from Fairy Pools taken closer to the Cuillins,as Scott says in his comment this doesn't really convey the scale of the surrounding mountains.
Another superb piece of Skye,just wish i was still there :(

    Another stunning trophy I'm completely jealous of. I fully expect this to be near the top of Explore soon.

    Man did you ever catch the mood - I can actually hear the wind and the water! Beautiful...

    Another stonker. Amazing bit of movement and some lurvly misty mountains to cap things off.

    My last trip to Skye was wet for the whole bloody week but I did get a couple mornings with short spells of agreeable light.

    Well you have worked the scene in less than ideal conditions and it has paid off. Lovely dramatic view with the Cuillins and threatening clouds in the background.

    The dark expressive sky gives great weight to this shot Steve, gives a great sense of the wildness and danger of the mountains. Excellent work mate.

    Wow. Really enjoy your descriptions with these photos - helps them come more alive for me since I have no 'feel' or experience with Scotland. The moodiness of this just tugs soul deep. Impressive.
