This was a very difficult photo! We arrived in the Earnslaw Burn by helicopter fairly late in the day, so the light was getting low. There are about 100 waterfalls there, and we happened to find one that was backlit by the setting sun. I had to direct the pilot exactly where to go so I could get the shot without the sun lighting me up and reflecting myself onto the window. Almost everything we tried did not work until we found one spot where the heli was in the shadow but the waterfall was still illuminated.
