    The Water of Leith in spate. I'm so annoyed at myself for not noticing I was only shooting jpgs. I would have liked to print one or quite large. Do you think these will go to 8x10?

    Those are great, Rob. I especially like the second and last, although the foreground in the third is fantastic.

    Thanks, sirs. It was quite stimulating being next to the anger and violence of the river. I tried to catch a little of that. Glad you like them.

    Wow! Those are very dramatic shots, really capture the power of the river. Great set.

    Thanks Beth and Dave. It's normally a slow, meandering river, hardly moving. Today was different...I wish it was like this more often.

    Excellent images - the first two are my favorites.

    I like the darker tones to go with the anger and violence. I really like the last and the resistance of a small twig to the all powerful flow.

    These are great, Rob. Love the sense of energy and the abstract forms, especially in the first. I reckon they'll go to 8" x 10" easily.

    Thanks again, Pete. Yes, I'll get some prints done by Ilford. Should work out okay.
