..the northern end of the chain of islands at Berneray, across the water is Leverburgh on Harris.

The island chain is spectacular and you can hop by ferry or causeway from Barra at the very South to the Butt of Lewis in the North.

The Western Isles are in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Scotland.

***cropped to the panorama shape to eliminate the footprints.***Sorry SadSadSad

Knowing you, Dougie, I bet it's not chance but a carefully considered composition that has resulted in an image in which all the natural lines, both with the grassy tussocks in the silvery sand and in the cloud patterns, lead the eye into the scene, over the sea, not to Skye this timeWink, but to Harris.
Love that silvery sand and the colours in the sea and sky could not be better.
I could just sit there and drink in the beauty......and possibly forget to 'take a snap'.

The pano version works well too, Dougie, but I like Andy do rather like the footprints in V 1: I hope my mentioning them was not taken as a criticism, but if so, it was never intended..........sorry!

Gorgeous image, love both versions.
A view I have not seen, but been close to, some years ago when my mind was more on fishing.....
Must put that right.

Gorgeous white sand and blue sea and skies with the mountains looming in the distance - there isn't anywhere more beautiful than the Scottish west coastline. I must say I do prefer my sand without the footprints, but it's almost impossible to find these days, even in the north of Scotland! Smile I once spent probably an hour cloning out footprints from a sandy beach image, but was glad I did in the end. In any event, a wonderful image of that beautiful part of the world Dougie!

These islands almost look tropical with the azure waters and the white sand. The type of image that really makes the viewer want to 'be there'.
Super work Dougie.

Wonderful sky and it has to be the pano for me in this instance, Dougie. A lovely balanced composition.

V2 concentrates attention on the contrasts to either side of the horizon.

The low viewpoint allows equal validity to the two versions. I do find the panoramic view more expansive despite the reduction in content!

Another outstanding image Dougie. I prefer V1 because I am so blind I cannot see any footprints..unless its my monitor.

To be honest I didn't even notice the footprints but I still go with v2 which has a better balance to it.

The footprints do not bother me, but have to agree with others about V2. I do give more attention to either side of the shot in V2. Either way, a gorgeous looking place, and that sky is beautiful. What wonderful travels you go on Grin. Moira

Exactly how I expected these islands to be. The white sands and the grass are such a beauty, and the blue water and sky complement this beauty. A perfect heaven!

Gorgeous shot Dougie; the pano brings it out best I think. I love the sliver of sea.

The gentle shape of the sand dunes mirrors the outline of the distant hills, Dougie.
Reminds me of the dunes at Lossie where i enjoyed my first summers, lunch in the dunes with Mum, and the grass in the sand always tickling my bare feet.
