Stac Pollaidh and Banner Cloud No.2

Inverpolly National Nature Reserve, Assynt, Scotland

The mountains in Inverpolly, although not the highest, are splendidly isolated from each other. This isolation can precipitate a meteorological effect known as banner clouds. In this image the mountain slopes in shadow act as a natural frame to the sunlit peak and cloud.
