Foinaven View...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...driving back from Loch Stack, I did a quick brake and 3 point turn when I saw this view through a gap in the roadside hills.

"No wonder you did a three point turn?" This is something quite special, and a sight which only the Scottish Highlands can release, simply and unmistakably Scotland, beautiful to the core.

I have heard about visitors in Scotland making a Ewe turn Dougie.
I just love that S shaped stream taking us between the hill to that lovely light showing up the back ground.

Fine balanced composition just inviting exploration along the water channel and round the back of the right hand rock mass: a fine study of the far north, Dougie........water, rocks, heathers, grasses, moss, and bald slopes.........and a complete lack of trees as far as I can make out.

What's a 3 point turn Dougie, I can do a 10 point one TongueGrin. A wonderful view and well worth any amount of points in the turn. Moira

The rock on the right has a predatory look, it reminds me of a giant squid. Seriously...

That's an amazing formation: I would have expected left and right to be complementary. An outcrop of a harder rock, I presume - basalt????
Very special indeed.

Lovely with the layers of different interests

Bill mostly Quartzite around here but there was huge upheaval of layers, some of the layers are visible south of here and almost vertical layers such was the magnitude of the land changes. It's hard to describe, it must habe been something that changed the crust of the earth for miles around.

Dougie, yes very we'll spotted, the zig zag and differant contrast on each side give a great feel to the image......
