Rosa Burn

Posted by
Stu (From Scotland | Working in Kyoto, Japan) on 3 June 2007 in Landscape & Rural.

The 7th in the Scotland series features Rosa Burn, which runs down through Glen Rosa on the Isle of Arran. As you can see, the water has a brown tint from the high peat content. It's this peat that gives some types of Scottish whisky their dark colour and earthy taste.

My mate Pete loves the dark colour and earthy taste of Scottish whisky. I happen to love the scenery in Scotland you've been showing us. Any chance of meeting up over there one day? I'll bring an inflatable raft and a couple of paddles.

Nice scenic shot. Very well composed with the background, middle ground, and a very interesting foreground.

Quite something how this one starts in serenity at the top and ends with such drama!
