I found it quite challenging to capture the Corryvreckan whirlpool in a picture as seen from a boat in the Gulf of Corryvreckan. There are currents and eddys everywhere and they change from one second to the next, sometimes before you can react and take a picture. There’s activity everywhere. This picture is one of the closest I managed to take, an eddy swirling right next to the RIB, with the Isle of Scarba in the background (and mainland Argyll in the distance on the right).

After the sunrise the sun quickly started to climb up in the sky, partially hiding behind some clouds. The light was still beautiful, with the sun reflecting on the water while the Argyll mainland was visible in the distance,
