And then rather predictably I also returned to Loch Cill Chriosd where the reeds were lying dormant and fragile on the surface of the Loch. As always I was fascinated by the patterns on the water and the stark sharp edges of the reeds in winter.
In this image I love the fish-like shapes the reeds make in their dormant state – and they drift across the surface of the water. They remind me of Angel Fish in the fish-tank I had as a child.
This image is about the delicate and fragile nature of the reeds and the equally wafer-thin reflections underneath. The reflections also give a sense of the movement in the water.
And then my favourite which is the image of the week. Again, I was trying to capture the frenzied surface of the loch and the fine stems of the reeds and the relationship between the two. I processed the image in monochrome and then inverted the tone curve to make, I think, a much more striking image:
Here’s hoping that next week I will be able to make some more images.
