IF

Certainly an untypical view - I cannot find a similar picture anywhere.
The very closest I can find is here
http://www.c-divers.com/gallery2/v/Loch-Linnhe/Kentallen_20110226/query_... - taken in a Scottish loch.
"Honeycomb.." is no help in any of my guides but describes what we see here. Quoted from where Chris?

This is one of those cases where the observer has strong advantage and where trustworthy experience pays off (and when a series of scaled pictures from other, though difficult, angles might help). Your other 2006 picture appears in 'others' - it is very useful reference.
You haven't 'said' unmistakable but this may be the case.
All in all I am inclined to agree - and I have. Long winded you might think but it might help others IF they come
