Scotland: Isle of Skye - paulsmit
‘Bla Bheinn seen from Loch Slapin.’

	The shore of Loch Slapin near Torrin on southern Skye offers a nice view of Bla Bheinn. The mountain lies just east of the Cuillins and has the same geologic provenance as this mountain range: a remnant of a large volcano which erupted when the Atlantic Ocean opened up and the American continent started to drift away from Europe, 60 million years ago. The grassy shore of the estuary has orange high water lines made up of kelp. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
