North Uist: Ice Age Remains by 


Lenticularis clouds over the rocky, barren landscape formed by ice-age glaciers.

The Outer Hebridean chain is fascinating for geologists as the Precambrian rock – Lewisian Complex – is the oldest in the UK, dating back up to 2.6 billion years.

The tide was out to reveal this typical coastal landscape with a carpet of pink sea thrift flowers (Armeria maritima) which live in the salty marshy land along the coast and are often covered by sea water at high tide.

Location: Carinish, North Uist (Cairinis, Uibhist a Tuath), Outer Hebrides, Scotland, UK.
Nikon D200, Sigma 18-200mm. Captured in RAW.

Featured in Highlands and Islands Photographers, Volcanoes, Earth’s Geology and Atmosphere
