Stacks of Duncansby

By hwatt  
Duncansby Head, Caithness, Scotland

Although there are stunning coastal rock formations in quite a few British locations and indeed Scotland has more than its fair share I do think Duncsnsby Head is very special. This is a particularly fine viewpoint where the stacks overlap a little but in truth without a long lens and the benefit of a flattened compressed view the stacks can appear less significant than they ought to be. At first the light was nothing special but as the sun got lower it escaped a bank of cloud and hot golden light bathed the two most dagger like structures. It might be difficult to discdern scale here but if you look carefully the little white dots adorning the cliffs are gulls, kittiwakes, fulmar, puffins and guillemots.
