Broken Skye by Alex37 Broken Skye by Alex37

Sorry, but when I thought of the title I just had to. The other choice was "Storrmy Skies" both equally bad :P

Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Anybody who doesnt think this is one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world has to be off their rocker. The first trip to Storr was a bit of a failure photographically (the weather was just aweful) but it gave us an idea of what to aim for.

We (=PastyGuy and I) got up early one morning (after no sleep in my case) and begun the long ascent of Storr, only to find it in cloud. Foruntely as the morning progressed the cloud thinned until we eventually had conditions which were far more interesting than we had been hoping for. To the left is the needle and the main stone is "The Old Man of Storr"

'most spectacular' yes, but does that add to the image?

you're right, the Storr is spectacular. This is now a bit of a history shot as the trees at the bottom, near the road, are being felled. So, unusually it is looking a little scruffy at present. I'm sure nature will rectify human misadventure! Great pic.
