The Aonach Eagach Ridge and River Coe

Behind The Lens

The Aonach Eagach Ridge from the River Coe

On this visit to Glencoe the objective was to capture a shot of the River Coe with the backdrop of the Aonach Eagach Ridge. I had reconnoitred this view a few weeks earlier but there was little water in the river that day and the light was flat.

I have taken many shots of the ridge reflected in Loch Achtriochtan outwith this river flows, but I thought that this view of it seen across river at the point where it tumbles over a number of very picturesque rocky steps gave a new dimension to the ridge and added much more interest to the overall image.
