Two views of the Cuillin hills

Local legend has it that the name Cuillin comes from Cuchulain, the legendary Irish hero, about whom Yeats wrote many of his less interesting poems.
Cuchulain stirred,
on the horses of the sea, and heard
The cars of battle and his own name cried;
And fought with the invulnerable tide.
Ireland sent saints and heroes to Scotland, along with her thick and thorny language, which the Scots, God bless them, have made even more incomprehensible.

I think you can tell the morning photo from the one taken in the afternoon without my having to spell it out.
