Falls of Foyers

I've not been photographing much recently but gave the GXR A12-50 a bit of a work out at Hogmanay (New Year). Here are 3 of the falls at Foyers which run in to Loch Ness.

Re: more sand...

I've enjoyed both 'two dunes' and 'more sand'. I see a lot of sand but it's totally different at the sea side. Two dunes took me back to school days where we learnt about the formation of Barchans (why?). I'm missing Peter O'Toole in these shots although my favourite desert film is Ice Cold in Alex....

Re: 28-10-2015

Looks like you will have your work cut out but at least the trees seem OK and it was fresh water rather than salt. That flood barrier really doesn't look fit for purpose.

That's serious looking. I watched the video - 'liked' in a strange way the one with the water flowing down the grove. I suppose it was very heavy rain that caused a water course to burst? Has it done much long term damage or is it more a case of a nasty mess?

Hi George and welcome to the forum. I'm still using the GRD4 so can't comment specifically on your question but I do share the same reluctance to process RAW so I think I understand where you are coming from. Anyway, I took a look at your blog and liked what I saw.
