...I had watched the sky for something spectacular for more than a week and one day this came along.
I scurried from place to place to get a few hopefully different images in the bag.
This is from a viewpoint on top of a rise in the road along the coast.

***four images stacked one on top of another.

Excellent well composed landscape image, beautiful aquamarine colour in the sea and superb sky.

That water looks so inviting... probably a bit chilly though. Did you take off your shoes and socks for a bit of a paddle, Dougie?

The water is a good 150 yards down Alan, my toes would have been well clear of the water.

While admiring the excellent composition and the interesting sky I am inspired to imagine the clear, clean air: I'll bet the breathing is good there!

A huge sky over an expansive scene: the sunny conditions has allowed the green of the sea to show and record so well.
What beauty, and unless my eyes are deceiving me, not a soul in sight.

Stunningly beautiful, love the colours.
We did not get skies like this, largely overcast, & therefor not the sea colours as here.
Another reason to go back....

The sky is amazing. And the beach... well... very, very inviting. Look at this stretch of loneliness. Awww, how restful!
One more day and I am done with my multi-tasking building sites. Smile
Well, then comes the great cleaning... windows, windowsills, cupboards, bathroom... but then the wee hoosie is a gem.
Take care,

Just wonderful Dougie.
