Liathach Light

By JohnParminter  
Lucky to take this, I managed to reverse over my camera, tripod and filters as I was parking my car prior to climbing this hill. Miraculously only incurred a slightly bent tripod.

Climbing a hill!!? Yep, as hills go Scotland has a few of 'em! Lol. Wink

Fantastic image, I love it. Which hill were you standing on?

A wonderfully atmospheric image with beautiful capture of the light and shade - I particularly like the little patch of light that is just grazing the edge of the foreground hill. Amazing (and very fortunate!) that your camera survived being driven over - perhaps the manufacturers should use you in their ads to show how robust their kit is Smile

Quote:Which hill were you standing on?

I'm standing on one of a classic trio (or Quartet, depending how you regard this area), they are primarily ancient sandstone standing on even older Lewisian Gneiss, topped with Cambrian Quartze. Some of the oldest rocks on earth are found in this area.

You should be able to work the rest out......
