This is the lowest I went with my camera in Elgol, at high tide. It was a bit of a risk, I knew I could get soaked. As it happens, I didn't - not here, anyway, I did get soaked later on in what I thought was quite a safe spot. Oh well.

Here you can see how wild the waters in Loch Scavaig were that evening, and there's lots of spray - it's not so milky that it's all been evened out, so almost a 'natural' capture.

Very artistic use of slow exp for the sharpened F/G rocks with the water breaking over them.
Such a lonely, remote place in the UK, with interesting topography that is so much like the Caribbean. Thanks for sharing. Chen.

It is, Nigel, it is. I wanted to see some less popular sights on Skye as well this time, but this place is too attractive to skip.
