Canoes braving the currents at the Falls of Lora.
The "falls" are a tidal phenomenon at the outflow of Loch Etive adjacent to the road bridge. An underwater cliff constricts the tidal flow producing impressive currents, whirlpools and standing waves. The high tides this week have made it very attractive to canoeists. These guys were paddling against the water flow as the tide was going out. I took the photo from the bridge.
