Basalt Staircase 2   Staffa, Inner Hebrides, Scotland

Of all the shots I took on Staffa this is one of my favourite perhaps because it sums up pretty much the essence of this bizarre island off the coast of Mull.  The sculpted staircase of hexagonal basalt columns is a fabulous natural artwork with the wall paper of subdued dark grey vertical cracked columns behind and the streak of swirling turquoise sea motoring around the foot of the stairs.  The rusty iron ring the only indication of the presence of man, should I have removed it, Nahhh.
