Its a matter of scale........ Smile

on our last day on Skye we spent the afternoon up at The Old Man of Storr... clear blue skies as we headed up much to my dismay, then some cloud, then a drenching which saw all the trippers in trainers off...leaving the place pretty much all to ourselves.. This was after the big squall and boy it was cold and windy!

Thank you Richard, Don and Jason.

Jason its an optical illusion.. Raasay (the island to the left side of the image) causes that illusion due to its angle. Smile
