Small Cascades, River Garry

Small Cascades, River Garry
Just outside the villages of Calvine / Struan off the main A9 road, the River Garry cuts an impressive deep gorge through the psammite rock, its strata layers exposed through thrusts along local faultlines, eroded by the water and pebbles flowing..
Following a friend's advice I explored along the river, admiring the geology; this was the first photographic scene to catch my eye - not the grandeur of the river but a small cascade trickling along to the side.

Technically slightly difficult to achieve the photo I wanted: the rain was coming on, the tripod had to be very low on the ground about 70yd away the other side of the gorge, shooting directly through a decayed clump of bracken with a tree branch swaying back and forth in the middle of the distance. With enough long-exposure data, these things leave no impression...
