An ancient landscape. by LordLJCornellPhotos An ancient landscape. by LordLJCornellPhotos
The edge of the Quiraing bathed in pre-rain sunshine. This area is an incredible geological treat and is found in the north east of the Isle Of Skye. Formed by a series of landslips, the Quiraing is the only part that is still moving. (Slowly though)

Wow! I really like the juxtaposition of the light and dark. Very interesting photo! :) Most of your photos from there have the dark clouds. Is it ever not cloudy at Isle of Skye? :)

Hahahaha well, it does get a lot of clouds there because of the mountains and the predominantly westerly weather streams. 
There are some days when the sun shines :D Thank you Dasha :hug:

I found an excellent article this morning in the New York Times about the Isle of Sky....Here is a small section...

Gigantic dinosaurs frolicked and splashed some 170 million years ago in the lagoons of what is now Scotland. That’s what a team of paleontologists has determined after discovering dozens of jumbo-sized footprints belonging to long-necked sauropods on the Isle of Skye. Mixed with the herbivores’ tracks were a few clawed impressions left behind by two-legged meat-eaters known as theropods.

The footprints present a snapshot of life during an important period in dinosaur history that has yielded relatively few fossil remains. In the mid-Jurassic, sauropods necks grew longer and the first birds were figuring out flight.

So it seems that not only is your place so beautiful, it is Historically important also

They have known about the dinosaur footprints in Satffin Bay for quite a while. They also found some dinosaur relic near the cottage I stay in. 
The latest discoveries are at a place called Brothers Point. 
Skye is such an amazing place

It is undeniably beautiful but it is now so busy in the main tourist months that I only go there in winter.

It's weird cause I know land moves but I find it so hard to get my head around that as a concept. When I look at pictures like this and try to imagine how it might have looked thousands of years ago, or how it might look in the future, my brain kind of melts :aww:

It's weird to think of but there is the practical evidence here that makes it easier to picture.
They have to repair the road every few years at the bottom of the fault because it has moved towards the sea.
