Clashach Cove, Moray, Scotland.

This remarkable little beach near Hopeman is one of my favourite places to be during the summer months. In June July and August, the sun shines directly into the bays at sunset and warm light filters across the pale rocks turning them to gold, but not on this occasion. This time a heavy summer storm is billowing over Inverness and the sky is purple with rage. Oddly this has given rise to incredible luminosity because directly above my head is a huge white cloud pumping white light down over the sea and pebbles, the long exposure was used in conjunction with a polariser to emphasise the clarity of the turquoise water and the pebbles can clearly be made out below a moderately turbulent sea..

Pentax 67II, 55-100 zoom, polariser, 0.45ND grad, f/22 at 12 seconds, Velvia.

An excellent composition. I really like the use of the filters here and the effect of the long exposure on the water

This one is special, you have achieved an almost 3D effect with the depth. The foreground rocks bring me right into the picture and make me actually feel like I'm there. The wonderful texture of the water and the way you can see the rocks below it certainly add extra. Top notch. Angi
