Skyelight - Looking down the Trotternish Ridge from the Quiraing sees a break in the heavy, moody, clouds allowing slivers of early morning light to hit the lower slopes of Cleat, revealing the contours of this distinctive feature of the ridge.

A welcome splash of sunlight picks out the jagged slopes of Beinn Edra lurking in the distance, adding depth and colour to the scene as low cloud just grazes over the summit.

Wonderfully atmospheric conditions amplifying the very best of what this inspirational, world class, landscape has to offer. A gift of a morning, made all the more special by the reward of perseverance having tried countless times before to capture conditions like this at the Quiraing.

Isle of Skye, Scottish Inner Hebrides

A few things I already reported about my little solo effort
for 5 days Iceland. Here is a sequel:

On this day I drove to a mountain plateau. All the way, for hundreds of miles, the land was flat like a flatfish.
Then I saw a silhouette on the horizon, enveloped in clouds.

It looked like the base of a mountain, but ...
You don't suppose me to go up there, right?

Google says, "turn right."
The mountain, or its base, was on my left.

I turned right, it looked like a parking lot .....!?
No, it was the start of an off-road path.
I said: "4x4? I have, let's go!"

What happened next is from a world that cannot be described. I have never seen such landscapes, nor heard of them, or had any idea that something like this exists down here on Mother Earth.

Every hill offered such a spectrum of colors, every curve offered a new view. If you got out of the car and walked a few steps behind the rocks, a new gate opened, as if from another planet, a world never known. I crossed rivers with my car and by reaching the other side, again a completely new cosmos. It went on for hours before I reached the Landmannalaugar area.

My god, what a ride cross-road thru the mountains and volcanic areas. Again it felt it would never end, a journey to thru the Genesis of this globe, a travel thru time of a billion years.

You should watch me sometime when it happens. I'm jumping off the car, shaking my head while I try to capture only an idea of what is to see and to feel. I feel small at the sight of this, then tall that it's me to be able to witness this enormous ability of creating such a landscape far from this world.

May I was unlucky that I had rain all day every day, the happier I am to have been able to watch planet earth as the maker of things I never had the slightest clue of this beauty.

It's time for me to pack.
A time I will always remember.
