Photographer's Note

The Old Man of Storr is one of the most famous weirdly shaped rock pinnacles in front of the cliffs of the Storr – rocky hill on the Trotternish peninsula of the Isle of Skye. It creates together with the other remains of ancient volcanin plugs absolutly fantastic and almost lunar landscape called The Sanctuary.
The rocks are quite easily accessible from the road A855 by well constructed path which heads up through an area of forestry with glimpses of the scenery beyond.

The view can be admired in full after about 1.5km of walk. Tourists are usually content to just wander around pinnacles, but probably the best of The Sanctuary one can get from a bit bigger perspective. I decided to go a bit further (which did not look very promising at the beginning) and the photo above is a result of this experiment. The distance let me capture not only a whole group of rock formations but also a part of Skye’s east coast with Loch Leathan and Loch Fada in the background.

Taken late afternoon, hope U like it!
