The neighbouring peak of Canisp, to the north-east, displays Suilven at its most daunting and dramatic - the steep slopes and narrow ridge appear significantly more subdued from other angles. The view from Canisp in the late summer through autumn and winter is inevitably into the sun, which bleaches out the colour, but can create a beautiful monotone. In this image the sun is reflecting brightly on the foreground loch (Loch na Gainimh) and on the sea behind, while rays of sunlight cascade oves the mountain ridge itself.
