Luskentyre - Sunset over Ceapabhal

Luskentyre - Sunset over Ceapabhal - The Outer Hebrides
February 2010

A stunning end to a productive day of photography on the Isle of Harris. While the scene captured may look peaceful I assure you it was anything but! Strong and bitterly cold North Easterly winds blasted the beach, and it was interesting watching the loose sand blowing continuously almost like a torrent of water.

Luckily for me the orientation of my camera was downwind and I opted for a low viewpoint up near a group of sand-covered seaweeds. I was quite lucky to witness a distinct shape in the blazing sky which seems to complement the bold diagonals in the foreground.
