Loch Lurgainn and Stac Polly

Inverpolly, Hasselblad XPan 45mm. April 2018

At the cloud-capped summit of Cùl Beag the forecasted winds were as savage as predicted. I hastily retreated from this hostile environment to find a safer alternative that would provide some much-needed shelter but still offer the view I had sought from the top. Descending out of the cloud I carefully navigated the complex sandstone cliffs that make up the north-western face and eventually found a small sanctuary just below the cloud base. I set up to capture the sunset; the pattern of eddies in the waters of Loch Lurgainn are indicative of the wind speed even at lower levels.
