Scarista Stripes I

Scarista Stripes I - The Outer Hebrides
November 2012

A soft light day featuring fairly moody skies, broken cloud and good visibility. After exploring the dunes at Scarista and making a few images I wandered nearer to the shore and enjoyed watching the waves roll in.

I opted to use a longer focal length to frame the distant landscape and hills, while executing a slightly longer shutter speed in order to capture the motion of the waves.

With it being soft light, the subtle greens in the shallows were very pleasing to the eye.
