Waternish Sunset, Isle of Skye

The Story Behind the Image - Isle of Skye sunset, Waternish

The west coast of the Isle of Skye is known for its wonderful sunsets and there is no place better to watch the setting sun than the Waternish peninsula.

This view was taken from the cliffs at the township of Stein, looking towards Ardmore Bay and Mingay Island, with Isay and Dunvegan Head in the distance.

I was staying at a lovely bed and breakfast just a mile away from this location so it was definitely not a hardship to stay up late on a long summer night and get this lovely photo.

I really enjoy the lonely house on the point of land in the foreground; it looks dwarfed by the sheer scale of the scene and the distant peaks.
