Luskentyre Beach, Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides - given a soft focus treatment. It was recently voted as one of the top ten beaches in the world. I'd rank it top beach!
Thanks for looking and for your time.

Like the soft treatment looks like a very fine beach indeed and no a bit of litter or plastic bag to be seen wow!

A beautifully composed photograph Ann. The soft focusing certainly give the beach landscape a calming and dreamy effect which I must say I rather admire.

Beautiful tones, lovely soft effect, and the bank of marram grass pulls the horizontal layers together well. A wonderful view of your favourite beach, Ann.

Been to the Western Isles many times, but only on business; ergo, never had the chance to sample delights such as this. One day, when I get tired of foreign travel and airport hassle ....... which won't be long in coming, if the powers-that-be don't change the stupid, stupid rules which seem to take all the pleasure out of flying these days. Anyway, neither the time nor the place for a mini-rant - excellent image!
