Raw

Looking down the gorge from the lower bridge, Falls of Bruar. I'm particularly impressed by the colours and the smooth glistening rocks.

This area is rich in geology (an extension of the Loch Tay fault?): there's a lot of limestone and other metamorphic sedimentary rocks (layered slate, possibly schist?) and a bit of red sandstone conglomerate nearby, all folded making rakish angles.

 

Taken on the Shen Hao 5x4" large-format camera with Fuji Velvia (old RVP emulsion) film as the light was fading one evening.

 

This is what it looked like taking this shot :)

 

Update 20121220: I finally dared revisit the scene, with less film and more megapixels.

 

Update 20170806: I revisited it again with even more megapixels: Raw.
