Another shot from my trip to Sutherland.
The trip to this beach was definitely the most rewarding of the week.

One of the best beaches in the highlands and looks like you had good conditions there too! The surf leads you through very effectively and adds depth. I wonder if the sky is a tad dark at top - maybe over-polarised? I think there's also a subtle optical illusion going on that makes me feel the horison is sloping down to the left. I don't think it actually is but I know from my loch shots that even though the spirit level was ok, the image doesn't look right and I have to crop to rotate the apparent 'horizon' to seem level. Look forward to seeing more from here. Smile

Thanks Al - the horizon is straight but I know what you mean - happened to me before. The light is coming from the left so thats why it may be darker to the right - don't recall using a polarisor - think it was just a 2 stop grad.

Interesting comments above: when the sun shines up there the sand , sea and sky take on such wonderful colouring as your shot today shows. Would love to head up that way one day.
Ronnie.

A pristine beach and a lovely sharp edge to the incoming wavelet, Geoff.
