The Dunes of Luskentyre

The Dunes of Luskentyre - The Outer Hebrides
November 2012

From the 'summit' of the impressive dune formation at Luskentyre, looking south west to Ceapabhal at sunset.

I have been up here on several occasions hoping to catch a colourful sunset behind Ceapabhal but this has yet eluded me. On this visit I adopted a straightforward composition to include the textures of the marram grasses separated by an expanse of sand which kind of complements the shape of the band of water, and I quite liked the contrast in warm and cool tones between land and sea.
