Beinn Alligin

Beinn Alligin, Torridon, Scotland

It was bitterly cold on the top of Tom Na Gruigach in Torridon, when I chose to photograph Beinn Alligin under heavy cloud. A shaft of light like a searchlight moved across the mountain tops and briefly lit the summit painting it with colour and light.

Great Transient Light capture Ian. I have been up this mountain twice but I have never seen it in such dramatic light. It takes courage and dedication to go for these situations.

Great timing. The reward for your patience and tolerance to the elements.
