This location and the mountain needs little introduction from me. Regardless of how many images I already have from this spot, no two moments are ever the same and I am always compelled to take yet another. This morning it was of Bla Bheinn Spring Reflections. This was a perfect morning and I was returning home from an early morning shoot above Elgol when I was attracted by this almost perfect reflection of Bla Bheinn in Loch Slapin. My first reaction was to tell myself that what I was seeing was little different to anything that I had seen before. However, having stopped and walked to the shore of the loch it was quite obvious that something really special was happening and that I could not leave without capturing the scene.
Whatever you achieve when taking an image from this location seems always to depend not only on the light, but also the height of the tide. Some photographers might prefer the infinite variety of form, texture and colour provided by the rocks, crustations and vegetation visible at low tide, but it's reflections that always seem to catch my eye, none more so than on this occasion.
