Blue Ribbon   Ardessie, Dundonnell, Scotland

This is one of the best examples of natural light piping that I have ever photographed.  This very shapely falls at Ardessie near Dundonnell, falls between a cleft of rock which itself forms a pipe to the overhead sky.  On this lovely winter afternoon the sky was cloudless and blue hence the water takes on the same colour but the splash pool into which it falls is shrouded with trees and thus blocks out the overhead blue light from above.  The contrasting colour is quite wonderful.
