Here is an image I captured on the River Tummel near Pitlochry, Perthshire; to me this represents “the power and the glory” of the river. It was quite un-nerving standing on the riverbank, inches from the flood water, as entire tree trunks would flash by carried away to who knows where by the relentless power of nature.
Very often I use long exposures of 30 seconds or more to record movement in flowing water; but as I was reminded, by using a range of faster shutter speeds (in this case 1/25th of a second) it is still possible to show movement together with the many intricate shapes and patterns created by the flow. Here I can visualise the mane of a galloping horse.
