Isle of Staffa

We went on a boat trip of the Treshnish Isles, first visiting Lunga to see the Puffins which was great. We then stopped at Staffa but only got around half an hour here so I had to just try and grab a shot, there was some cloud but the sun was very strong and has obviously cast some strong shadows. The rock formations on this island are amazing.

    The colour of that water is almost tropical - had you told me this was Miyazaki-ken, I might have believed you....

    Hi Jonathan...great sky detail...the rocks look a bit like the Giants Causeway...like the composition again.

    Nicely done Jonathon, it looks a very interesting place. I like the composition, the colours in the sea and the sky.

    Hi ShangaiChris, this island is off the west coast of Scotland. We stayed on the Isle of Mull and took a boat trip to get to this island, it is part of the Treshnish isles. Well worth a visit.

    Thanks.....
    Would you like to put the image on the map? I am in China. So I could not visit the island. Maybe I could visit it by Google Earth. :-)

    are these formations created by nature?
  • Jonathan Aspinall 5y

    They are indeed, you will see these on the coast of Northern Island and Iceland as well.

    Thanks
