16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The edge of the world

Our family spent this year's vacation on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. We explored the iconic Quiraing and were rewarded with this spectacular view only a short distance from the trailhead when the sun briefly broke through the clouds. Due to the windy and rainy weather there were only a few other visitors. The landscape presented itself barren and empty and made us feel like the last human beings on the face of the earth.
