Dark Edge

By stevenr  
Blaven is the east most peak of the Black Cuillin. Separated from the main Cuillin range by Glen Sligachan, it is the highest of the surrounding mountains.
Geologically Blaven consists primarily of gabbro sliced by sheets of dolerite, and in common with other mountains in the Cuillin, basalt dykes. This combination of rock has weathered at different rates giving Blaven its distinctive look. It also causes magnetic variation and so care must be taken when navigating by compass.

Superb capture of light and colour! Love the 'rainbow'.

Deserves 10 or more... Bla Beinn is one of the most difficult mountains to get in good light because of the way it's angled and Skye is always bloody awkward.

Super shot.

Good work. I was up there a few weeks ago, but at a later time of day, and tried for a similar type of view from Torrin. I've never been 100% happy with my photos of Bla Bheinn, but this one works very well. I particularly like the little rainbow, as it adds a further point of interest.

Cheers folks, I wouldnt say this was one of my better compositions but it was your typical stop-the-car-and-get-out grab shot to get the rainbow. Glad you like it.

A magical capture, Steven. The splash of orange on the shore and the rainbow lift what is already an excellent shot an extra notch.
