It’s amazing how the body reacts from one day to another. Day 2 didn’t quite hurt as much as day 1, but it wasn’t without its fair share of pain and daunting uphill climbs. I have nick-named the day a day of waterfalls for very obvious reasons. They were bloody everywhere! I can only think it must have been raining overnight because it seemed like every point were water could flow was flooded and certainly coming down heavy. I was hugely impressed by the waterfall at Corrieshalloch Gorge; easily the largest I’ve seen in the UK. However, the shooting locations available were pretty poor, and almost impossible to do a long exposure due to the hoards of people bouncing up and down on the tension-bridge. I did however find a beautiful waterfall that epitomised the reason I chose to cycle. It wasn’t signposted, although clearly had a viewing area available, and you would have missed it in a car. So I did what I like to do best and jumped the fence to take a great long exposure shot. I would easily rate it as my best long-exposure water shot so far. I did try to better it later in the day, however that effort was cut short by a horrific midge plague that is still causing me irritation. Avon Skin So Soft, you are being replaced by nets and Deet.
