This was taken a few minutes after yesterday's upload.

It really was quite amazing observing the sand as it was blown and shaped by a strong westerly wind. It really did transform the beach into an almost other-worldly landscape.

I know it's possible to manipulate images digitally to create your own alternate version of reality but when nature does it for you isn't that so much more captivating!

Hope you're all having a good weekend!

Mike

PS you really should go large on this one Smile

Superb shot and great to see white sand as I remember it from the Outer Hebrides. Where was this taken?
