Another from my evening at St Abbs Head.
I think this one works much better than the earlier one, the balance of light is much more dramatic.

A wonderful place which is still on my wish list of locations to visit. And a wonderful capture of it. Dramatic light indeed, and it works so well. Well composed, too. In short: I like it!

I like the light through the hole in the clouds, and the fg textures and details Simon.

One of my favourite locations, although I've never been there yet when it was safe to go anywhere near that slipway.

Should be worth an award but I'm a little perplexed as to the current EPZ thinking on landscapes, so maybe not.
