Wild Horses   Glen Orchy, Highlands, Scotland

The white foaming tops of a river in full flow bounce over partly protruding rocks in front of a beautiful tangle of old and dense birch woodland draped in mosses and drizzled with lichens and old mans beard.  It took me a while to figure an appealing pattern and anticipate the result of a longish exposure to reveal the flow of the river as it galloped past unusually it was necessary to invert a graduated filter to lift the shadows of the backdrop of birch in the dark woodland and at the same time tame some of the very brightest white horses.
