The landscape of Assynt may be lacking in great numbers of trees, but fortunately the bare landscape has a wonderful character all of its own. It is rolling landscape full of rocky knolls, peat bogs and adorned by sparkling lochs. The mountains punctuating through this mantle are an obvious draw for attention. Here, from the left, are Suilven, Canisp, Cul Mor and Stac Polly. I was rushing to capture this image, as the light was about to drop below a knoll behind me. Moments later the rocks were in shadow, instantly removing much of the texture from the scene. Photo © copyright by Graham Chalmers.
