Photograph of the River Muick cascading over rocks. A wooden footbridge placed over boulders is situated at the top of the waterfall.

This photograph is a later carbon copy of the original albumen photograph. Carbon was a process that was less susceptible to fading, unlike an albumen print that is prone to discolouration over time.
