A sea kayak makes an ideal way of taking photos of coastal geographs from within the geograph itself. This photo of Sgeir Phlocach was taken inside NR4755.

The sea kayaker is looking over to the reef. In the middle distance the slopes of Maol Ardtulla tumble into the sea at Carraig Mhor. In the far distance McArthur's Head marks the entrance to the Sound of Islay with the SW coast of Jura beyond.

We were en route From Port Askaig to the Mull of Oa and back. a four day trip involving three overnight camps. We turned back from the Oa due to high winds. It was so windy off Rhubha Liath that black guillemots were "grounded" and just sitting in small rafts on the sea.
