The Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Following on from our road trip around Skye last week, May 2017, I wanted to capture the The Old Man of Storr in black & white on this visit.  The Storr is a rocky hill on the Trotternish peninsula, and the hill presents a steep rocky eastern face overlooking the Sound of Raasay, contrasting with gentler grassy slopes to the west.  The Old Man is in fact, just one element in an array of fantastic rock features, and looking at the photo, he is the tall rock formation on the right.  There is a spectacular walk to the famous summit, passing through the iconic landscape of the Sanctuary with many different rock formations.  This is something we have yet to do, although I quite like, just taking photos of the stunning landscape.  Also there never seems to be an empty parking place, and it was only May, hate to think what it is like in the height of the summer.  But I got my photos, then we did find somewhere to park nearby and have our picnic, overlooking the Sound of Ramsay, a stunning view to accompany our sandwiches.

  1. Great photos Lynne! That’s an incredible landscape. It reminds me of our western deserts, but I think if it were in color it would look quite different. 🙂
