Basalt Pinnacles, Scotland

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features On Skye's Trotternish Peninsula, basalt pinnacles loom over the Sound of Raasay. Rising from the debris of an ancient landslide, they bear witness to the geologic upheavals that shaped these lands. See more photographs from the January 2010 feature story "Edge of the World."
