Storm at the Storr

By surelyknott  
A trip to the Isle of Skye is incomplete without visiting The Old Man of Storr. Though incredibly popular, I'd always been fascinated by the area and needed to experience it's majesty for myself. Swarms of tourists swiftly vacated the area when the sky turned dark; a combination of torrential downpour and extreme winds (shock...) beat down in true Scottish fashion. Perfect Wink. I hiked up to this viewpoint and patiently waited whilst being battered by the elements...eventually the storm passed and the light broke through the clouds, illuminating the area that just moments ago was full of people. This light here reflects how ferocious the land is, and how it's been shaped over time. An awesome experienced that should be witnessed by everyone at least once.
