Leaf on Rock (14th Nov 2010)

I went back to the Braan at Ossian’s Hall the next day.  The water had fallen quite a lot overnight which changed the river images considerably and allowed me to do a lot more scrambling over the various rocks.  On my way back I spotted this lovely bright orange leaf on some rocks – I think it’s a birch leaf – along with a few larch needles, and took this shot.

Like the previous shot this was taken with an old manual 70-200mm Pentax lens.

River Braan at Ossian’s Hall (13th Nov 2011)

Having got my pre-loved Pentax K-7 I was eager to try it out, and since the rivers were very high I went to Ossian’s Hall to see what I could make of it.  I had the standard WR kit lens, plus an old Sigma 70-210mm A-series Zoom, which is what I used for this shot.  Manual focusing proved to be very tricky without a split image focusing screen.  I had a lot of otherwise reasonable shots spoilt by a soft focus.

Falls of the Braan, Dunkeld (16th Oct 2007)

I had started taking longer exposure images of moving water, and this are the first ones I was pleased with. They did moderately well at the camera clubs, and I have always like the hint of evening light and autumn colour in the colour ones and the movement in the water in the B&W shot.
