Loup o'Fintry on a wet day
Prior to visiting, I was telling a friend how, if we timed it right, we'd get the sun low along the valley beyond the waterfall. We didn't. Neither did the weather. Arriving a few hours early, we got absolutely soaked as the heavens descended in a teriffic burst of rain.
So I took this photo instead - the obvious wide-angle incorporating the foreground rock (a basaltic lava outcrop), waterfall, trees blowing around in the breeze and along the valley.

A combination of HDR and pixel-shift to bring optimum exposure for the water whilst handling the dynamic range from dark shadows below the boulder to hints of texture in the bright sky above.
