Apricot Quiraing

By hwatt  
Quiraing, Skye, Scotland

I'm going to stick a giraffe like neck out here and say that I think this is the best picture of the iconic tree I have ever taken at the Quiraing. Taken on a recent workshop I was running, this turned out to be just about the most magnificent autumn sunrises at the Quiraing I can remember and we had it all to ourselves. It was a tremendous introduction to the Quiraing for one of my party who had never been up there before, and when apricot light wafted through the clouds and struck the tiny tree festooned in red Rowan berries you could really believe you were in Eden. This view has been shot many times before not least by me, but if you are going to take an icon such as this you might as well make sure it's the very best version possible.

Now, I don't know if you've taken better.

But it is wonderful!

67s rule, providing they're in the right hands. Or on the right tripod...
