P24 deserves a fixed place on your PC. And P28 would be worthy too.
Let's move further North. Skye Island has a long line of Cliffs in the North-West, with some falls. That's where we went.


Wasn't this the North East on our way to the Quiraing?

You are right it was North-East. But at the coast. Lealth falls are at the coast.

I like all the coastal shots at TOBHTA UACHDRACH (am I glad I took a photo of the sign). This was an interesting place and we were occasionally blessed with good light there, which makes the whole series (D14-17 and F26-31) a joy to look at.

I'm still running behind a bit, but here's my Bride's Veil Falls series

p30: Two falls



p31: An even wider view



p32: The upper fall



p33: Upper fall and river



p34: With some people, for scale (it's not a very big waterfall)


p30 & 31: A6000 + Sony E10-18/4 p32, 33 & 34: A7ii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD

Gentlemen, you have captured some absolutely stunning images. The whole thread is a joy to slowly page through. You have set the bar very high. Impossible to choose favourites, all favourites.

Thank you

Thanks, Brian, Mestari.
And there are many more to come.

P30-31 have the right level of flow (afaic). I like them.
The weather shots (F26 F27) are great but not as moody as F29

I was thinking about including F29 in my pick too, but those poles at the bottom were too distracting, I can't not look at them first.

Next Lealt Falls

D19


D20 And closer


D21 The larger fall


D22 looking along the cliffs


D23 And down to another view. There was so much wind, that people with wider raincoats were blown off their feet.


D24 A Jan van Gent fighting with the wind

Thanks for the comments gentlemen, glad you like our efforts. Indeed the first day was blessed with a combination of splendid landscapes and special atmospheric phenomena. And then travelling with two other like-minded dyxum friends adds an extra layer of inspiration (at least for me)

Quickly catching up to TOBHTA UACHDRACH


p35: High contrast mood



p36: Lower contrast mood



p37: Fish farm close-up



p38: Comma detail



p39: I think you can see the "making of" in F30



p40: A slightly narrower F27


All A7ii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD or A7Rii + Sony FE 70-300G (exif in the shots)

Good stuff at Lealt falls Domien, the amount of water coming down was amazing. I like the mood in D22 and the Jan van Gent (Gannet) is a great catch and shows the tremendous wind force we experienced there.

I went down to the balcony you see in D23 and was almost blown over twice. Fred and Domien stayed wisely higher up.

p41: Where the water from Lealt falls enters the sea there used to be an industrial mining operation, with some ruins remaining



p42: A closer look at where the fall water enters the sea



p43: Another ruin from the mining operation



p44: The large and small part of Laelt falls in one photo



p55: View from the falls observation platform back to the sea


p41-43: A7ii + Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD   
p44-45: A6000 + Sony E10-18/4

P55 really looks inviting and like summer.
I missed P44, both falls in one shot.
The comma shot is good to. Was it nature or did ‘we’ help some with this platform.
