Glen Strathfarrar is a beautiful place to visit. One of the central glens in the heart of the Highlands of Scotland (the others being Affric, Glass, and Cannich), it holds the spirit of what the land here is all about.
I have very fond memories of taking this image. The air was totally still, the only sounds that could be heard were bark of the wild deer in the distance and the landscape falling off into hazy light in front of me. Could be hundreds of miles from anywhere or anyone. Just a fantastic moment to just be.
I do try to stay true to the scene but in this case I had to change a couple of aspects. In the original image, there was a small shoreline leading diagonally in the right hand corner, which was distracting in the image. I cloned this out to enhance the reflections.
The other aspect I changed was the colouring of the two halves of the reflection. This was just to equal up the two aspects.
Doesn’t change my thoughts on this image. It was still an absolute pleasure to be there and capture its beauty.
