Inside Fingal’s Cave in the Hebrides Islands of Scotland by JC Richardson on Flickr.
ingal’s Cave on the Island of Staffa in the Hebrides was formed by the erosion of volcanic basalt columns as the surround sea washed up against the island for eons. It is famous as the source of Mendellsohn’s overture of the same name (properly named The Hebrides Overture.) Victorian travelers flocked her and were inspired by the natural cathedral effect. I shot this at about 4:00 in the morning while it just beginning to turn deep blue outside, and then had two assistants (from the Argyll Hotel on nearby Iona) light the inside with two large flashlights (torches).
