The Needle

The Needle

Photo Information
The needle at the Quiraing on Skye is a dramatic photo location. But it’s a steep climb up on slippery ground, made even harder in buckshot hail and gale force wind!!

Thanks. My partner, Sharron, pressed the shutter whilst I was standing on the path. So I should really say that's her shot.

Very effective - was the red jacket a deliberate choice for the day?

I don't normally put people in my landscape photos, perhaps a lone figure on a beach works. In this case the scale of the needle (nearly 40m high) is hard to judge without the reference scale of the figure. At least the red jacket is a change from the cliched "Instagram Yellow"

Stunning view. Your tenacity (both of you) in the face of the environment is admirable.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
