...looking into Talisker Bay on Skye, the mountain guards the way into the island from the sea... another place where the sand is two different colours, black and very light grey. No doubt volcanic from the history of this ancient island.

Fabulous composition Dougie. Even with the out rushing water you can see the volcanic sand and texture underneath, cracking stuff....topped up with a great view of the valley beyond.

I take it you had your waders on when taking this then?

Cracking composition Dougie. The foreground sand leads the eye to to the mountain perfectly.

Wonderful lines leading the eye into the picture with edges like razors. Impeccable.

Lovely shot, Dougie, and you can see so clearly the difference in colour of the sands. Your low POV makes for quite a dramatic f/g

Certainly takes a bit of looking at. The abstract nature of the foreground adds interest.

What a tremendous effect that water flow is making to the image. Good one in every aspect Dougie.

That foreground detail is a work of art in itself, Dougie. Congratulations, Sir, on seeing and realising its potential so masterfully.
