Bridge over Calm Water

Strathglass, Scotland


This is a beautiful autumnal location where I never saw another soul.  The water was flowing very slowly so I wanted to completely freeze the water to make it inky black so you would see the autumn colour reflected in it.  I took a long enough exposure to create the desired effect, there was a slight breeze which has resulted in a slight movement in the silver birch but not enough to distract from the image.
