NG3640 : Trudging through the moorland

taken 5 years ago, 3 km from Bracadale, Highland, Great Britain

Trudging through the moorland
Trudging through the moorland, taken 5 years ago
The term 'featureless' springs to mind when attempting to describe this image. The moorland here is fairly flat, and grasses, mosses and heather grow densely. A walker's feet sink into the growth up to the knees, and it is not difficult to poke a hiking pole three feet or more into the soft ground. The weather has been dry for some weeks on Skye. In normal wetter conditions, I am sure the ground here would quickly become boggy.
