Millions of Pebbles...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...ground down by millions of years of storms and thrown ashore by the waves built up coming across the Atlantic and smashing into Scotland's west coast islands.

I'm imagining the waves that brought that lot. Scary thought...

Was there any plastic there, back in 2013? There might be now.
Not at that particular spot Alan, but it's a windy corner on Skye and the plastic bottles, marker bhoys and blue rope are often found along the coastline.
I found a settee on a Harris beach a few years back, discarded off a cruise liner maybe? Things that break on the high sea seem to be jettisoned over the side.
Who knows.

I wonder what the view would be like today. Lots more snow I would think. This is lovely Dougie.

Pebbles - the perfect f/g for wide lensed photographers - Colin Prior said in a recent talk that the public don't likes rocks in the f/g!
Comments please.
