NG4311 : An Coileach at very low tide

taken 12 years ago, near to A' Chearc [other Features], Highland, Great Britain

An Coileach at very low tide
An Coileach at very low tide
This small skerry is only 0.5m above chart datum, meaning it's only visible at low spring tide and even then only around the equinoxes. So a mission was hatched to photograph this square above the water at a vernal spring tide (reaching down to 0.1m). The rock appears to be granite (but may perhaps be Torridonian Sandstone, as is Soay). Soay is seen behind, and Skye behind that, with the tops of the southernmost Cuillin hills wreathed with cloud.
