Steall Waterfall, Glen Nevis, Scotland.

 
The spectacular waterfall known variously as An Steall Bàn, Steall Waterfall or Steall Falls is situated in Glen Nevis near Fort William, Highland, Scotland. It is Scotland's second highest waterfall with a single drop of 120 metres (390 ft). The fall can be viewed from the path that runs through the Nevis Gorge, an area owned by the John Muir Trust which manages the area for its wilderness qualities. An Steall Bàn means "The White Spout" in Gaelic.

The best place to photograph the falls from is at their base, but this involves crossing the river via a steel rope bridge. Not for the feint hearted, if you haven’t the bottle don’t try it! So, all the photography equipment had to be carried across and back again in order to make these images.
