Caption: Northern Corries at dawn. View looking west just before sunrise across Coire an t-Sneachda (hollow area) to Coire Lochain. The ridge separating the two hollows is is the Fiacaill Ridge. The flat area at left is the Cairngorm plateau. A corrie or cirque is a semi-circular hollow with a steep headwall. They are a feature of local mountain glaciation. In the Quaternary, the hollows may have been wholly or partly filled by small glaciers or may have acted as the source area for larger valley glaciers. Photographed in the Cairngorms National Park, Scotland, in November.
