Sunset Panorama Knockan Crag

By hwatt  
Knockan Crag, Inverpolly, Scotland.

This proved totally irresistable. I had parked for a temporary respite after returning from Sutherland at Knockan Crag aware that it was often a great place to get a silhouette of the mountains and layered fingers of land with the iconic shape of Stac Pollaidh beyond. But never in my wildest dreams did I think I would get light of this sublime quality where the setting sun bounced red light off the volcanic looking peak off wee Stac Pollaidh (sticky as I refer to it), looks like he's about to erupt with a fountain of lava. Unbelievably the light spread out side ways around all the surrounding peaks so I set up with a panorama in mind. Hope you like it I doubt I will ever get to see it looking as good again.

Fuji GFX50S, 32-64 zoom, stitched 5 frame panorama.
