15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Unbelivable morning at the Old Man Of Storr. Really the only proper sunrise I had there. I arrvied at night and parked campervan at the car park. I was bit worried as it was my first time here and didn't know how will I get to the top in the darkness. Avarage hike is something like 45 min- 1 hour. It wasn't easy I have to say. When I was hiking up I saw colors glowing on the horizon I speeded up and got there in 35 min absolutely exhausted :) I still had about 1 hour to sunrise. It's funny when you walking there first time you don't know what to expect. I was standing beside stack and wasn't sure if this is what I am looking for. It's only when you walk pass it bit you recoginse shape you probably seen on some photos.
I was first on site and it was really worth it as the moon was still on the sky and rising sun gave amazing colors to the place.
