Luskentyre - Dusk

Luskentyre - Dusk - The Outer Hebrides
February 2010

After a very productive sunset shoot in very blustery conditions I took the decision to point the camera 'upwind' for one last image of this magnificent beach.

The severe wind had sculpted unusual shapes and lines around the debris near the dunes and I composed the scene to make this most of the foreground, and an overall minimal feel.

Once the sun had gone down a long exposure time was inevitable but I was pleased with the effect that it brought to the water and clouds.
