Anyone who is familiar with the Isle of Skye will have seen the famous rock pinnacle of The Old Man of Storr as they drive north from Portree. I have passed there many times but the mountain has always been shrouded in mist until our trip there last week when we had glorious weather for several days. On this particular morning we had parked the camper van at the foot of the mountain so that I could get up there for the sunrise. There is a ‘classic’ shot of the Old Man from a distance from this side but I wanted to get a more intimate view closer to the pinnacle and so chose this viewpoint which enabled me to include the rising sun. Quite pleased with the result which is quite different to other photos I have seen of the Old Man.
