...another from the morning on the beach at Pollachar at the southern end of South Uist. The squall passed me by and during my seven days on the islands, I saw many squalls and showers, they all passed me by, I got a little wet nipping out to feed the birds one morning at the cottage.

Sunlight catching the wet sand, rain falling in the background. That's the story of the British summer. One for the Met Office!

Nicely made image. Deep

Superb composition using the multiple left-right diagonals to their best effect.
Sometimes we observe squalls passing to the north of the Tyne while we remain dry. More often it's dry to the north Sad

Typical Hebrides weather, changes so quickly. Lovely image of the place, great sky.

Thesun shines on the righteous. Sufficient ingredients here to make it a cracker Dougie.

Those rocks and sand ripples just draw the eye into the shot - right to the rain TongueGrin. Glad you managed to stay dry.
The little chicks are gone this morning Sad. Moira

I love the textures of the seaweed and the rippled white sand and water. It looks a beautiful spot Dougie!

Beautiful balanced composition and a superb sky, Dougie.

Silvery grey foreground mirrored by a silvery grey sky - or the opposite, of course - and just enough colour to turn it into a bleak vista into a scene with inviting points of refuge.

They are better when they are distant, well captured

Your composition and the limited colour palette are the features of this beach seascape that appeal most to me, Dougie: you were lucky to have dodged the showers so well, but someone in the distance looks to be getting a good soaking.
(PS.......don't know how I missed this one earlier......must be an age thing.......RWinkWink)

Great lead in and wonderfully desolate. Well captured.

Your low POV adds depth to this seascape Dougie,excellent composition and love the capture of the rain in the distance, another fine image my friend, Bill.

Oh well, there was rain on its way!
Isn't it wonderful, how sometimes a rock or two can change the whole feeling in a landscape? Without them it would be just bare... and even the ripples in the sand wouldn't be that prominent.
Good work, once more.
