Cloudy evening over Loch Sunnart

Loch Sunart (Scottish Gaelic: Loch Shuaineart) in the Scottish Highlands and Islands is a sea loch bounded by the Morvern district in the south and by the Ardnamurchan peninsula in the north. At 19 miles in length the depth of this narrow inlet of the Atlantic Ocean can reach a depth of 124 metres in places. The whole loch was proclaimed a Nature Conservation Marine Protected Area in 2014. The weather can change with dramatic speed in this region and this image shows how sombre, even foreboding, the landscape can swiftly become under the half-light of a cloud laden highland sky. This, then, is Loch Shuianeart in one of its darker and more brooding moods.
