I took this photo yesterday morning in Applecross. It’s only a four image stitch, and it was difficult to even get four shots in as the light changing fast.
I went down with one of my best friends who is a passionate photographer. She isn’t based around landscapes but none the less is very keen for them, and also pretty good at capturing them considering she only started taking landscapes a couple months ago! I was meant to go on another shoot with her this morning but my alarm didn’t go off… (lucky for me it was raining)
Right as we walked up to the jetty in the dark, we saw movement in the water right on the sure. I first thought, “that guy sucks at swimming”. Once I noticed the size of the wake and that it wasn’t just coming from one thing i realised it wasn’t a person. I then saw a fin, and then thought “I hope that shark doesn’t jump out of the water and get me” (as the were only 4 or 5 metres off shore. I then realised it was actually 3 dolphins (but I don’t understand why dolphins were in the river heading upstream? A couple of them ran into the jetty and got really confused. A couple minutes later another 2 dolphins swam past making an even bigger wake. They too ran into the jetty!
