2007-09-06j Rocks in the Pass

Rocks on the Western slopes of Càrna.


Carna is part of the Scottish Inner Hebrides, the largest island in Loch Sunart (near the junction with Loch Teacuis). Though once occupied by 18 families, the Island now has no permenant residences, and two of the three houses set on the East-South-East face are holiday homes. It does however have a large population of ravenous midges and ticks, and a somewhat less ferocious sheep population. The top of the 'mountain' (height >170m) takes about 30-40 minutes to reach from the houses, though 20-25 mins is possible at a good pace. It is also the closest point on the island with mobile phone signal. Walking around the island however takes about a whole day....


Taken using a Pentax Optio S and processed with Photoscape as follows: deepened (mid-gray) and a Cinema film-effect applied before boosting the red-saturation by 70% in GIMP.
