I have seen that rounded boulder any number of times, so it is obviously a prime spot for photographers: the boulder sitting amongst the slabs of rock and the cliff face make an excellent f.g for the shot, which here is most attractive with the Cuillin ridge in deep greyish/blue silhouette against that superb sky. One of the very best I think I have seen from this viewpoint, Richard, and I am not surprised to see it receiving a GEA. Very well done.
Ronnie.

I am off to Skye mid April and will be unashamedly sitting in your tripod holes! Last time I went the tide was a little to low to make this work properly for me but I need it for my collection! Hope I get this sky Richard, looks like a perfect evening. Well done mate, get it printed!
