Jade lagoon

By hwatt  
Little Sango Bay, Sutherland, Scotland

This astonishing colour is always present to some degree but the height of the tides and the quality of the light makes a fantastic difference to the intensity of colour on display. Above we have a truly formidable dark grey sky which is killing most of the reflected light that would otherwise be present meantime a squirt of sunlight has escaped the clouds and blasted a splinter of light on the sandy beach, couple this with a little height and judicious use of a polariser to cut reflected glare still further and you see that colour with epic levels of luminosity and hue.

Pentax 67 II ,45mm lens,Fujichrome Velvia

Difficult to believe this is Scotland with these colours. I have experienced similar colours around Gruinard Bay once many years ago. A delight to view.
