Stac Pollaidh Spotlight
Inverpolly National Nature Reserve, Assynt, Scotland
The attractive early morning light had long since been obliterated by a thick bank of low cloud rolling in from the west. I switched my mindset from mountain vistas to looking for detail images, which look best in soft light. As I was scouring the land beneath my feet, I noticed that a small gap had opened in the clouds allowing the snow covered distant peak to be illuminated briefly. Quickly, I managed to fire off a couple of shots before the gap closed and I resumed my search of the world in miniature.
