Brooding Barra, Dougie.

The letter box format works well with these parallel bands, Dougie: I love the different colours in the sea, the greens beyond the barrier as only you find up there, and that blue brooding sky with the sheets of light and dark cloud make such a beautiful upper border. The lone seagull against the dark sky is just the icing on your photographic cake.
A fine capture of available light and colour in a beautiful setting.
Ronnie.

Your eye is so finely-tuned to developing weather conditions that I can only marvel.
And Ronnie is a master of the descriptive analysis.
Perhaps there is room for me to praise the balance of the composition. Parallel bands, certainly, and that evocative sky; the apparent height of the seagull, tiny though the bird appears, is in itself enough to offset the bulk of the island. Tremendous.
Regards
Bill

Like the layers in this Dougie, and as Ronnie states the letter box format work well with it

I love that little gull, flitting as dainty as a butterfly between heaven and sea.

I agree with Ronnie's comments. I particularly like the sky which to me has a watercolur effect.

This is a superb landscape/seascape Dougie and one of your best and most original for a while. It's all been said in descriptive terms above and I would suspect it would make a great large print.

For me, the movement in that sky has almost the feel of the movement found in the Aurora Borealis. Love the colour of that sea too Dougie. Moira

Absolutely amazing sky and light - superbly composed, as all your images are. That seagull seems to suck in the light and reflect it at the same time. Striking!

All as above and just love the Johnathan Livingston seagull experiencing freedom in that expansive sky ! Gill
