Harris Purple   Traigh Rosamol, Harris, Scotland

A heavy sky settled over the serrated teeth of Harris's distant peaks turning them a rich purple hue.  The soft light at dusk eased the problems that more contrasty light would produce and permitted full detail and rich colour to be seen in the ancient Lewisian gneiss rock.  I had multiple frames to choose from but I particularly enjoy the single thread of draining water that connects to the sea and this was the only one of three frames that gave that tenuous connection to the mountain backdrop.
