Tide Surge Fingal's Cave   Staffa, Inner Hebrides, Scotland

I found this icon of the Inner hebrides known as Fingal's cave every bit as spectacular as I hoped it would be with vertical multi-coloured columns of basalt and their hexagonal pavement terraces structurally fascinting.  This one was taken late afternoon with the sun a touch less diffuse than i would like but it sure made the water glow turquoise as it surged up the crevice to the vertical purple algae covered basalt columns at the end of the cave.
