Via via X: From our latest holidays in the UK:
After having been to the "Kilt Rock" where the weather was changing every moment and made the views on the Trotternish behind us very spectacular we knew we had to go back to the Quiraing. I can't tell you how special it is to make that great walk there, I just miss the right words BUT…
The Quiraing is awesome. It is supernatural. It is a place of wonder and amazement. It is outstanding by any measure. If you are fit enough to walk the narrow path and scramble up and down the steep slopes – you must do it. To visit Skye without experiencing the Quiraing seems unthinkable.
Go on a bright and clear day for views of the Outer Hebrides and the Scottish mainland, framed by the pinnacles, cliffs and great buttresses. Go on a wet and windy day to feel your spine tingle as the clouds and mist swirl around you in this unreal and menacing landscape. Whatever the weather, you’ll not forget the experience.

Superbe paysage bien valorisé par ta prise, Le relief étonnant est accentué par la lumière, j'aime bien ces lacs qui apportent une teinte bleu comme le ciel, et parfait pour l'équilibre de la composition avec cet arbre en premier plan.

Bonjour Viviane ,
les vues que tu nous proposes snt de plus ne plus belles ;) . Aussi bien en terme de paysage , magnifique ici , avec les petits lacs et les montagnes aux formes caractéristqiues , que de lumière , et de composition . Le petit arbre tordu au premier plan est du plus bel effet .
A propos , est ce facile de faire la "Map View" ?

Who wouldn't want to visit after seeing this photograph and reading your note!
The repeating slopes are exciting and carry the viewers to the very depths of the shot but, for me, the forceful detail is the extended naked tree, reaching out over the slope like some daredevil teenager, trying to impress his peers!
Have a lovely day,

awesome, supernatural, wonderful, amazing, unthinkable view here. Great POV with good light. I like very much the tree hanging down from the top. And the lakes add a nice touch. Very impressive and it makes me dream about a trip there. I have it so much closer than you do. May be next year I would be able to afford it?
Thanks for sharing,

Ca doit être rare de voir ce paysage sous un tel ciel bleu ! Bon, en même temps c'est ce qui m'est arrivé il y a quelques années ... Joli point de vue en tout cas, avec une belle utilisation de l'arbuste curieusement tendu dans le vide. Belles couleurs, belle netteté. Avec une lumière plus douce du matin ou du soir ça aurait été parfait !

Hello dear Viviane,
I hope that you are well and I must thank you for your message to Lisa and myself about walking in the Quiraing.
Obviously I must have missed this lovely photograph over three years ago but it is absolutely delightful and it has obviously been taken on a remarkably clear day. So often we see these spectacular hills and mountains clothed in mist but here the view right to the distant horizon is quite clear.
A beautifully composed photograph with beautifully soft light, perfect true colours and excellent details and sharpness.
P.S. An interesting note too. Yes, I often refer to the "Walk Highlands" website - it has a wealth of information and good maps as well.

Bonjour ma chere Viviane
Ahhh I know exactly what you mean when you say there is magic in these hills. It's so hard to describe, isn't it? It really is amazing to see this place in blue skies. Almost a different place altogether from the grey skies we are so used to seeing. Your composition is flawless and the image pin-sharp, with beautiful rich natural colours. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.
Have a beautiful day
