Via via XIII: From our latest holidays in the UK:
Underway to the Quiraing on the Trotternish peninsular, via road A 855, we had a stop at Loch Leathan, to have a good view on the "Old Man of Storr".
The Storr is a distinctive part of the Trotternish landslip, see The Quiraing, where the breaking away of the edge of an ancient cliff has created pinnacles and highly unusual landforms. The Old Man of Storr is the largest of these pinnacles, and is especially conspicuous from the main road north of Portree.

Great shot of a good location.. Like the sharpness and the water's color, composition is also well.. perfect light..

Excellent landscape photo. The perfectly lit mountains are the main focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground blue water and small island as well as mountains in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong. Very well done.

Bonsoir chere Viviane
An iconic viewpoint, in fact I have a similar POV in my gallery, although the quality of mine is no good. Lovely vivid colours and great depth. The Isle of Skye is one of my favourite places in the world. I hope you loved it as much as I did.

I saw a critique by you on someone's photo and thought, "Oh, she is not just an admin, she participates, too." I followed you name's link to check your gallery out. I find this photo interesting because I would expect Scotland to be less arid-looking. This is almost like a scene from Salt Lake in Utah. I love the color of the water, though.

Nice landscape from Scotland. Good combination of the blue water and rocky mountains. Well done with great colors, light and sharpness.
