Below: East of bay, arriving at the small hill and looking down, there are the flat rocks, where seal families sun themselves in mid-winter.
Below: West across the bay can be seen the low hills of Garth's Ness stretching out to sea [to the left].
Beyond Garth's Ness is Fitful Head, generating a vapour cap above.
Wind is blowing from slightly south of west.
Below: After walking west over the watershed - the backbone of Garth's Ness - crossing and following the third stream to seawards - South.
This brings us eventually to the waterfall dropping into the inlet beside Fitful Head.
Hillside behind and to left lifts up out of frame, to the lower flanks of Fitful Head.
Below: Stand quietly above the waterfall and look over the edge to find a hopeful cormorant.
S/he is looking for dinner in the waters of the "cauldron".
Below: High tide filling up the "cauldron". Most of its teeth are now underwater.
POV - above waterfall.
Fitful Head is to the right, and goes higher.
Above : Tide is lower, gulls and fulmars look for food.
[lots more birds are invisible - out of focus]
BTW those fulmars get even more aggressive than gulls - going for your face and eyes - if you offend them, maybe by getting too close to nesting areas.
Higher POV - partway up cliff.

"Is the only challenge in the world to be greed and viciousness?
Is the only satisfying power the power of the ascent over men, the only dream, ambition?
And must the alternative to greed, evil, ambition - be only sluggishness?"
