Northern Paradise

A horizontal version of a shot I previously posted in June 2011 after one of my trips up north. Here's what I had to say about that one -


This is one of my favourite beaches in Scotland, taken a while after my second soaking. The clouds had rained themselves out and the weather improved a lot.


I still had wet feet though, I couldn't be bothered changing boots and socks yet again, so stood for about 3 1/2 hours waiting for my shot. Figured it would be bad luck to change!


I'd seen a shot nearby on my way back from the other Achmelvich upload (2 shots ago) which was OK, but when I got to it I saw this one, which is better.


I hung around until after sunset, and then drove off to find somewhere to spend the night. In a cloud. Which was still there when I got up the next day.


Canon Eos 5D, 17-40L, hi-tech filters


Hit L to see this on a dark background, photos always look better when they are not against bright white.


All of my photos are taken as one shot, unless specifically stated otherwise.
