Bagh Dhail Mor

Bagh Dhail Mor - The Outer Hebrides
May 2009

Taken at sunset on the Isle of Lewis. I had found a stream leading from the rocks on to the sand and set up my shot to include the very last rocks that were glimmering in the late sun.

As the sun got lower I timed my shutter to take the shot as the waves rolled in, catching the last moments of the day. Unfortunately minutes later the blank canvas in front of me was completely trashed by a couple walking past with their dog! (The woman did explain afterwards that she couldn't walk on the rocks behind me due to her knee, which I can't really argue with, but it would have been nice if I'd had the chance to have a few more seconds to make one final image of the scene!)
