A couple of days ago I mentioned a river that we visited near Torrin on the Isle of Skye, the name of which I’ve been unable to identify, but which is a hidden gem amongst all the dramatic scenery that is to be seen around avery corner on the Isle. Looking very ordinary from the roadside it was the cream-coloured river bed that drew my eye and inevitably the request to Dave to apply the brakes. A few photos in the immediate vicinity of the car and then a climb upstream along the river yielded many more photo opportunities at every twist of the river. Some of the ravines were a little too steep and narrow to venture into, but were I twenty years younger I dare say I might have been encouraged to clamber down. However, there was a variety of scenes easily available without any foolhardiness and one could have spent a little longer there; the threat of a storm drove us back to the shelter of the car, just in time too, or we would have been soaked!

The three photographs I’m showing you today were all taken within ten minutes stroll from the car. They have been subjected to a semi-HDR treatment and look best if you click on them to enlarge. You can also view some photos from this location on Dave’s flickr album Isle of Skye.
