Amazing Assynt

April 22, 2018

Assynt in the North West Highlands is probably my favourite part of the UK, its spectacular for photography, great for hiking, cycling, and kayaking, and is home to some absolutely beautiful beaches. All this stems from its unique landscape of sandstone on top of Lewisian Gneiss which produces a landscape like no other, a feeling of space, a feeling of wilderness, and a feeling age. I mage use of the early Easter to head north and try and capture it at it's early spring best.

The above image of the mountains of Assynt at sunrise, Cansip, Silven, Cul Mor, Cul Beag, and Stac Polly is taken from just off the "Mad road of Assynt" otherwise known as the B869. There is a car park about 2 miles out of Lochinver from where a short climb gives access to this great view.

Suilven and Cansip reflected in Loch Druim. I had arrived a little late to capture the pre dawn colours but the water was so still I'm still happy with the results.

After a very disappointing sunset at Stoer thanks to some late intruding cloud and rain I played around with the big stopper to create this image of the lighthouse.
