...from most angles you see only two peaks Beinn na Caillish is to the right here. Beinn Dearg Mhor on left and Beinn Dearg Bheag is in the centre.
This is taken from near Tarskavaig on the Sleat peninsula.
This will have set many teeth on edge with the Gaelic names, I'm sure.

Like a lunar landscape, planted on the world. The contrast between foreground and distant view is quite amazing.

An amazing photograph, as my OH has already said. I can't help envisioning a similar view of Northumberlandia which has recently been created not too far from here (but just far enough Wink)
I'm all for Gaelic, Welsh, Catalan, Basque and other minority tongues even though I don't speak them. The linguistic world is every bit as interesting and varied as the visual world, just far harder to get to grips with . . .

Bill

Au contraire, Dougie, music to the ears, mon ami.

The distant mountains appear to be rising like an alien planet above the horizon.

A beautifully observed on captured panoramic, one filled with wonderful warming light and something that little bit special...

Malc you have read this image so well, it was quite dark on the 3 Bens and then the cloud opened a little and slowly lit the three mountains and the red came quietly alive in front of my lens.

I have to thank you my friend for the UA as well, being approved by you is an honour.

The greater contrast and colour density of the fg gives a nice sense of distance.Smile

The comment referring to the distant mountains looking as they belonged to another planet is spot on: wonderful contrast between f/g and b/g, Dougie.
