Scarista - Edge of the Dunes

Scarista - Edge of the Dunes - The Outer Hebrides
November 2012

This is a bit of a marmite image but I composed the frame to make the most of a subtle diagonal from the very edge of a bank of dune grass to lead towards the distant hills combined with the negative space before the small mound in the distance.

There was some drama in the sky above the hills which seemed to complement the pristine sands, and also when viewed large there are a number of large deposits of white shells which adds a little interest to the scene.
