Absolutely wonderful, Graham, an amazing image. I love the tiny human that gives us scale against this monster formation, and the view from Storr, which was so compelling in its own right. Beautiful.

Thank you Minnie. It is difficult to depict the huge size of the formations, the figures you mentioned certainly help to do this. And as you well know, finding a relatively fine clear day requires lady luck to be smiling on you.

Thank you Chuck, but you must be careful, you have used up almost a years supply of superlatives :D

Beautifully shown and beautifully processed! I'm not sure how hard it was to get to this angle but I would say it was worth it. Wow! S-

Graham, I second what Chuck wrote. A genuine gift and privilege to live in such a gorgeous location and to be able to share it with others. Thank you. Matt

Thank you Matt, I don't exactly live close by. Skye is about a 600 mile drive from my home but it is well worth the effort :)

Wonderful view, and even without the people it gives a sense of the geological devastation wreaked upon this area over the eons.
