Couldn't agree more with Darren Jackson. Superb! I'm up there this weekend and looking forward to it all the more now. Well done.

Wow. Am speachless. That is incredible. And yes, why the hell has someone voted rubish for this.
Streapadair - can we have some details? Camera, lens etc...?
The Bantam - 02/Oct/06
Thanks, all.
Nothing fancy - Olympus OM2, 50mm lens, Kodachrome 25 (it wasn't yesterday), 4 upright trannies stitched in Panavue (Photomerge failed to hack it), colour-corrected and sharpened in Photoshop. Sgurr na Stri - not even 500m high - is magic.

One of those photos that just make you want to pack a bag and go there now!! Awesome
Gabe - 04/Oct/06

I went up Sgurr na Stri a couple of weeks ago, and it is certainly the finest view I have ever seen. Cracking picture again Duncan.

Your beautiful photos continue to amaze those in my office and make my desire to retire to Scotland even stronger - hope you don't mind, it's now my backdrop. Brilliant, cheers

What a marvellous photo of the 'skyline' of Skye (and lochs) ... makes me homesick for Scotland.

One of the few photos I've seen of the Cuillin that convery a sense of what the place is actually like.

Still waters run deep. After viewing this site and recalling magic days I've spent in many,if not all, of these sanctuarys I'm especially priviledge to possess a photo montage of your work.
