Kintra Waterfall, Islay

Kintra Waterfall, Islay, Argyll, Scotland.

These images were taking on different walks and in actual fact it was not my intention to shoot the Kintra Waterfall on the second walk but I just cannot resist a long exposure when I see flowing water over cliff face or moving at speed. As you can see the first two images Kintra Waterfall is flowing well and was taking just after a period of intense rain here on Islay, which helps with the silky effect on the water greatly. The second image came as part of my Soldiers Rock Walk very near the end, so I didn’t mind resting my feet for a little bit to capture this image, I should have taken my boots off and dipped my feet in to ease the burning heels as the route I took back was not the easiest shall we say, check out that post to see all the images from the walk and read more about it.

The Kintra Waterfall is situated a couple of hundred meters to the South West of Kintra Farm, basically follow the track from the farm, once you go through the last big gate follow the track up the hill a couple of hundred meters then the river crosses the track and follow the river down to the Waterfall. These images fit well for Nancy Merrill’s Theme of ‘White’ this week for her ‘A Photo A Week Challenge’ as the the long exposure captures the flowing water in a smooth, silky white fashion that in my opinion is only fitting for a black and white edit…your thoughts?
