First post here: Remote Torridon panorama
Feb 23, 2011

Hey lads and lassies, this is my first post on the forum.

It's of the northern corries of a mountain called Liathach in Torridon, Wester Ross. It takes a couple of hours to get to this point from the road, and the circuit of the hill takes about 5-6hrs to complete with a full kit.

the image was taken with an EPL-1, bought as a portable addition to my Pentax gear (which I was also lugging - it's all 'portable' in the end ).
It's a four (vertical) shot pano cropped back to 3:2 (actually, 60x40cm).

The mountain is of Torridonian sandstone, sitting on a base of Lewissian gneiss, some of the most ancient rock on the planet (3-1.9 BY). A traverse of it's peaks is a challenge, especially in winter.

The hummocks in the glen are glacial debris, or drumlins, and make for rather heavy going (even downhill)! A series can be found below....if you don't mind trawling through Pentax stuff
