I’m a sucker for silhouettes of couples, so when I saw this couple climbing up a small hill at the base of the Storr as I made my way down from the summit, I just had to stop and take a photograph.
As you can see from the picture, recent logging has stripped the mountainside of trees, leaving just a few trees clustered around the small hill. It’s sad to see the remnants of the trees that once stood on the hillside, but the logging did allow for the unobstructed view of the Storr enjoyed by this couple.
And, finally, this is the view the couple would have been enjoying as they looked up at the Storr and the rock formation known as the Old Man of Storr (which is a little hard to make out in this image because it is in shadow).
If you’d like to see the view from near the top of the Storr, which includes the hill shown in this post, have a look at Storr View.
