Calm evening at Uig Sands, Isle of Lewis, Scotland

The Uig Sands are a dramatic bay on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis. Seen here at low tide in the evening from the hills surrounding Baile na Cille, a small inn at Timsgarry. At low tide the bay drains completely and you can walk all the way across. A stunning place.

For chess fans, the Lewis Chessmen were found in the dunes across the bay.

This pan was assembled from five shots.
