TOP TO BOTTOM :
Sun halo with ‘sun-dogs’ seen left, right and above the sun - which is behind the central pillar. Sun halos are natural atmospheric phenomena caused when light is refracted by tiny ice crystals in the upper atmosphere.
Midsummer sunrise through the circle.
Early morning after a snowfall which blasted snow onto the megaliths.
Callanish, straddling the ridge above the waters of East Loch Roag.
