Goat Fell

Posted by
Stu (From Scotland | Working in Kyoto, Japan) on 6 June 2007 in Landscape & Rural.

Goat Fell (marked as Goatfell by the Ordnance Survey) is the highest point on the Isle of Arran. At 874 metres (2,867 ft), it is one of four Corbetts on the island. The mountain, along with nearby Brodick Castle, is now owned by the National Trust for Scotland.
The name is believed to mean either 'Mountain of Wind' (from the Gaelic gaoth) or 'Goat Mountain' (from the Norse geita).

Canon EOS Kiss X 1/320 second F/11.0 ISO 400 18 mm

A sunny day in Scotland... Who would have thunk it? ;)

I don't wish to appear biased here, Stu, but I reckon this one is leading the way in the picturesque stakes. At least to this point. I like your adjustment levels to the sky; the eye is really drawn to the light contours.
