Monochrome Madness 5-05 / 211

The Old man of Storr, an iconic rock ensemble, on the Isle of Skye. You can reach the group after climbing the mountain side for about an hour like a sheep or a mountain goat. The group is locate approximately 450m above the sea and the name giving “Old man” is about 48m high. The Storr is the name of the whole mountain formation (750 m high), where the rock needles grew out (they were created by the rain while the surrounding material eroded and only the harder parts survived). They have a fantastic view downhill to the sea, the neighbouring islands and even the Scottish mainland (assumed the sight is good enough).

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole.

“Monochrome Madness” is now in its fifth year of existence. Look at Leanne’s site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!
