Auchinellan burn in spate

It’s been tipping it down here all weekend and I decided to go and have a look at the small waterfall at Auchinellan, just down the road. Saw a dipper while I was there as well.

To avoid the contrasty light which affected my last shoot at the waterfall, I went out at dawn on Saturday. I had hoped to get low sunlight coming through the trees onto the waterfall, but it was cloudy and I got even, flat light instead. This time I did a little more gardening to clean up the cascade and the plunge pool.

This small waterfall is on the burn that runs past Auchinellan House on its way to Loch Ederline. I’ve spied this shot out on a few occasions, but there was enough water going over on Sunday to let me get this 1-second exposure. I did some gardening to remove debris from in front of the waterfall to clean the shot, but some escaped me. I didn’t crop it out, because I would have lost too much of the water landing in the pool. Memo for next time!
