A lovely piece of work, Derek... so much going on everywhere in the image. The foreground textures and shapes in particular are delectable, though the whole thing is a feast.

Very beautifully captured Derek. The wind may not have felt good but it sure made for a lovely image.

For me the wave of sand across the centre brings the eye to the tiny figure, a lone person in a wonderful seascape.
I bet you left here knowing you had something good and your step lively in the blowing sand.
I'm looking forward to the beaches of Harris very soon, blowing sand or not.
