Storm Horizon

By hwatt  
Cove Bay, Moray, Scotland.

Moray has its own minature sandstone pavements just like those on the Yorkshire moors albeit those are composed of limestone. These rocks simply drip with lichens and overlook the beautiful pebble coves of the beaches near Hopeman. This was taken on a particularly stormy evening where the sun attempted but just failed to penetrate the dense cloud. Above me was a huge solitary white billowing cloud that lent this scene teriffic luminosity amplifying the light that fell on the sea and the lichen rocks, helping to reveal the amazing colour palette beneath.

Pentax 67 II ,55-100 mm zoom,Fujichrome Velvia Polariser, 0.3ND grad, f/22 at 4 seconds.

A beautifully composed image, Ian. The light quality is lovely as are the muted colours and detail in the f/g 'pavement'. This is a part of the country I have never seen but your image makes me want to rectify that omission.
Regards, Ronnie.
