Elgol and the Black Cuillins Sunset

The Story Behind the Image - Elgol Sunset, Skye

Elgol is a lovely little fishing village on Loch Scavaig, south of Broadford on the Strathaird peninsula of the Isle of Skye. It is also a magnet for photographers.

The cliffs along the loch shore are a peculiar honeycomb pattern, and the harbour itself is picturesque, but it is the wonderful view across the loch towards the peaks of the Black Cuillins that draws photographers - like me - again and again.

On this occasion, I came late in the day and set up my tripod by the rocky beach. What I didn't anticipate was that I'd have to keep moving my tripod as the tide came in, but I'm pretty happy with the result! Pure Skye magic.
