Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Tried a bit more extreme edit of this picture. Btw, thats me with the camera in the picture πŸ˜‰ My father took this picture and i really like it. But to make something special out of it i enhanced it according to what i think suits this picture. Very personal, but still i hope you like it!

Wish you a wonderful weekend !

An image from a two waterfalls at the Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye. Posted this one before, but i got inspired to convert this one to black and white. The grey sky now looks more foggy.

Beautiful streams with rocks in the hills of the Isle of Skye.. this is the beautiful blueish Fairy Pools, covered in rain and mist. So no real blue colors in the water – the name Fairy Pools seems to have originated from the beautiful clear water in the pools..

Yet another waterfall at the Fairy Pools. This one was photographed when the sky turned grey; a thick layer of mist started to develop.. therefore the background is a bit greyish πŸ™‚

Which one do you like btw, the first or second one?

My favorite subject captured with the ND-filter: waterfalls and mountain creeks.. i just adore mountain creeks πŸ™‚ The cold water, the rushing stream and all the stones and rocks. Makes me feel like a little child again, when i was in Switserland. Only this time, i was in Scotland at the Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye. Wonderful spot, go there if you ever get the chance to go the the Isle of Skye in West-Scotland!
