Red rock at sunset

As the sun sank to the west of Loch Roag on the Isle of Lewis the grey rocks of Lewisian gneisss began to glow red.

Paddling under these great cliffs we basked in the radiated heat that had built up during the day.

The sun finally set on the western horizon, below which our destination, St Kilda, still glowed in the last of the day.
