Inverpolly Canyonlands by Alex37 Inverpolly Canyonlands by Alex37
his shot of Stac Pollaidh shows just what unusual (or usual?) conditions can do for a scene. Although Stac Pollaidh lies in Scotland, I can't help the association with the more famous Caonyonlands, of America. This shot also illustrates the benefits of just going for it. I sat out two spells of snow and strong winds on Stac Pollaidh on this afternoon, all part of an Atlantic low pressure system. I still hung on to the hope of some light though and I was (eventually) rewarded. Stac Pollaidh, like much of the surrounding area is made of 1 billion year old Torridoian sandstone.

It's a very interesting view indeed! I loved those rounded stacked rocks there - and dramatic lighting here too

Yup, this is another stunner. Patience is a virtue that I'm not blessed with. You obviously are.

Hi Alex. I just stumbled upon your fantastic pictures of Coigach. It would be great if you could put them on the Achiltibuie Appreciation Society Facebook site photo pages ([link])

Err, by the way Stac Pollaidh is in Ross-shire, not Sutherland - but hey, as you say it's over a billion years old and it used to be near the south pole, so who's complaining?
