Sgurr Tuath View by Alex37 Sgurr Tuath View by Alex37
This image began as an idea to capture a unique and spectacular view of Inverpolly and Assynt. 'Spectacular' is probably the best word to describe the region so there was no problem there. Finding a unique viewpoint is difficult though, most of the peaks in the area are heavily climbed. Sgurr Tuath stands alone in this regard. Its completely unpathed ascent over streams boggy ground and up steep gradients, doesnt make it as walker (or photographer) friendly as some of the other peaks. With this in mind I set out with fellow photographer Stephen Sellman *sassaputzin in search of something new. This was the view I personally made the trip for and we piked the perfect weather window for it. Even so, the weather we got on the way up Sgurr Tuath wasnt exactly ideal and the wind at the top made taking vibration free images extremely challenging!

Sgurr Tuath is a magical peak with plenty to shoot, but its relative inaccessibility means I will probably end up going up some other peaks before returning here!
