Quiraing or Cuith-Raing - Isle of Skye, Scotland, UK

Quiraing or Cuith-Raing - Isle of Skye, Scotland, UK

The Quiraing, or Cuith-Raing, is a landslip on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It is located on the Northern part of Skye (Trotternish Ridge). The entire ridge was created by a series of landslips over time. The Quiraing continues to move today, requiring yearly road repairs at the base.
Parts of the Quiraing include, "The Needle", "The Table", and "The Prison."
This image was created by blending 18 separate exposures as the sun cast shadows over the island.
