Etive by AndyMumford Etive by AndyMumford
The oft - photographed River Etive in front of the Stob Dearg peak of Buachaille Etive Mor, the gateway to Glen Coe and the Scottish Highlands.

I got up at dawn on consecutive days to try and get this at sunrise, but on both days just got torrential rain and low cloud, so in the end, this is yet another shot from Scotland taken in mid afternoon light, and the only day I had in Glen Coe when the sun managed to break through the cloud at some point.

It's a lovely location though, almost impossible to not photograph it, and for this I was standing in my wellingtons in a little run off of the main river, with the tripod perched on a rock in front of me. The previous week had seen the whole valley covered in snow, and then the temperatures rose, the rain came and all the snow on the peaks started to rush down the mountains in fast streams and rivulets, flooding the rivers below. At sunrise, the noise of water rushing off the mountains was incredible, and many of the streams burst their banks.

This is a blend of two exposures. One of three seconds for the water, and another of a minute for the clouds
