...a wonderfully quiet bay with lovely sands and a walk through the dunes. The village is along a small road that ends not far from here, worth the wander on a fine day.
Looking at this I just can't understand why people go to places that are overcrowded. Isn't this heavenly?
Think I know this bay from a postcard.
Lovely peaceful bay and like all that low dark cloud. Another beauty Dougie. Moira
Johanna I thought of you in many places on my trip up here, you would have been oooing and ahhhing all the time.
The coast of Sutherland is littered with such 'unknown' pearls. The white sand beaches and the dunes are a well-kept secret which have not been over-run by tourists. The Scottish 'summers' help to keep the tourists away from as well..
A fine scene, Dougie. Very well composed, of course.

I could scarcely express this better.
Dungeness and Happisburgh have a similar effect on me: their vastness renders the few visitors effectively invisible.
And seaside resorts out of season enjoy some of that same quality - we never go there in season!
Delicious landscape, Dougie.
Beautiful View, Lovely capture.
A wonderful spot to recharge your batteries and enjoy the solitude, Dougie: I go along with all the comments already made.
An image which takes me back to my childhood when I would plat quite freely amongst the dunes with my brothers and sister. The dunes in question were only a stone throw away from Carnoustie and Scurdie Ness.
Thank you for the wonderful memories Dougie.
beautifully composed, I can just see you walking along this stretch finding the best shot and the colours are very natural, I feel peace and tranquility
The oreground grass gives it such a great depth
Grasses on dunes always convey wind-swept for me.
So very beautiful. I'd go there every day if I lived near by....
Ah - so you went to Oldshoremore too Dougie! I love this place and can wander happily along the sands for hours. You've captured the atmosphere of the place so well here. The colours and light are just perfect in your image.

.... and the midges do too!
Wish I was there. All the elements come together to create a lovely scene.
Lovely beach & bay. Left a tripod overnight on the rocks there once - an excuse to go back the next day....
Must have made the heart leap to come upon such a beautiful scene Dougie, Love the diffused sunlight and the wonderful foreground detail.
A fine composition with some well selected foreground grass.
