Hilltop mast
The base of the mast is on the left. It is fitted with solar panels and electronics equipment. At points up the mast are instruments for measuring wind speed and direction. At the photographer's feet, one of four securing shackles is embedded in the moor, with cables secured to the mast. Beyond, the cloud-shrouded Cuillin lie on the horizon.
