Suilven from Cam Loch

“Distorted Echo”

The first image of any trip is always the most difficult. To warm up, I tend to start my adventures by falling back on a honeypot location, or a shot that I have taken before. This composition is one that I had taken the year on a gloomy day at sunset. As you can see from this follow up attempt, the location is much more suited to sunrise. The only thing that could have improved these conditions, would be mist on the water. Or am I being too demanding?

Truth be told, this composition had worked better last year when the water was lower and the twin peaks of Suilven could be seen more clearly. In that version, the curves of this river outlet and the shoreline echoed a stretched silhouette of Suilven at a ninety degree angle. This year, that symmetry is less apparent. No doubt this is one I will return to again in the future.
