THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOGRAPH

David RossIs there a more wonderfully named cavern in Britain than Smoo Cave? I love the name. This is the cave with the widest mouth in Britain, and is located just east of Durness, on the northernmost coast of Sutherland. I cam to Smoo with a vague notion of photographing the waterfall which famously thunders down inside an inner chamber of the cave. I quickly discovered that the water volume was so high that it kicked up an enormous amount of spray, so any thought of a photograph was ludicrous - the camera lens would have been covered in water instantly. Somewhat chastened and unsure what to do next, I photographed the striking patterns on the walls of the outer chamber, then turned towards the cave entrance. I was struck by the wonderful contrast between the beautiful sunny September day outside and the dark shape made by the cavern mouth.David Ross Photography signature
