The Lighthouse at Elie Ness in the gloaming light

The rocks all around Elie Ness are completely black in colour and have a texture like coarse grit, as many who have visited will know. To the east of the Light rock pools are in abundance when the tide is out. Noticing that for some reason there was a pool a fair bit above the level of the sea still being fed by the retreating tide I stopped to watch. Every so often a large sea swell was being channelled through a narrow gap in the rocks, surging rapidly up and around this pool before draining back out again. Tried a few different angles before settling on this one. Taken 50 minutes after sunset as the gloaming light was fading.
