...not a long walk to find this beach on Iona, but we had a way to go to the cottage back at Salen. This is right beside the ferry pier. I just loved the light and the line of rocks leading the eye into the image.

Nice one, Dougie. The rocks act as a good lead in.

I'll be away working up north for a few days (Shetland and Aberdeenshire) so might not be commenting as much.

Super shot, Dougie. I was particularly taken with the colour of the water when I was there. Fabulous turquoise, probably due to the sands. Lovely spot, great shot.

In my jean's pocket rests a pebble - white Iona marble which I found 2006 on the same little white sandy beach. I showed it its home and it started crying....Wink or were the tears mine?
Thanks,
Johanna

Iona's white sands and the pink rocks of the Ross of Mull are a stunning combination. Great shot Dougie.
