First of all, apologies to everyone who voted on the previous image (that I subsequently deleted). I was in a rush to upload images after returning from holiday and, in hindsight, I wasn't happy with the version I uploaded.

This is another version of the Elgol shot - I think the light is marginally better, there is more colour in the clouds, and the wave (which I thought was distracting in hindsight) is absent.

All comments and critique are welcome. Please look at the large if you can.

Had to check out the name there..hehe. Much better username Smile

I missed your first image uploaded but happy to vote on this one. Nice and moody with that bit of special light on the Cuillins.

Thanks Jeanie. I'm glad to get rid of the original username, it wasn't one of my better decisions (it was chosen in desperation when I didn't get my first choice LOL). Smile

One of those rare and special shots that take the breath away. Award-winning, surely.

That is a cracking shot with some beautiful light Pete, and the fact that it hasn't even reached a RC yet is frankly, beyond belief!

Came back to this one now that I can type again. I was down here a few afternoons as the light was fading, this particular time I recall someone along under the cliff, there were a load of Japanese photographers all along the beach.

I did notice there was a lot of photographers along the beach, some under the cliff etc. It was really quite busy. I was beyond that, west of the "Joe Cornish" bit ... if that's any help!
