Tidal Line...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...a few yards from the window of my cottage at Ardmair, near Ullapool, I was photographing he sea slapping into the pebbles and looked over my shoulder, a habit I have which often reveals another image.
The sunlight was bouncing off the vibrant seaweed tossed up by an earlier high tide. Another image found by chance and it looked good in the camera...

Well spotted Dougie.
I thought it might have been a rusty chain from the thumb !!
Vibrant colours from the seaweed indeed.

Sometimes we have this knee deep. Makes a great image.

A rusty chain, an organic yellow-brick road... A rising diagonal, so positive, progressive, onwards to the future! Even if walking on pebbles makes for slow progress...

It looks good on the screen, too, Dougie.
Textures so strong that I can almost feel them beneath my feet and the most effective possible composition.
My eyes were watering in the chill wind, the sun belies the temperature.

Amazing how us photographers manage to see more/past the obvious to people not tuned in
for the next image....and I find this rather one of those Dougie...a lovely shot, and the added
seaweed scattered adds even more

Dougie, A lovely composition and colour contrast between the seaweed and pebbles. Hopefully back to your part of the world before Christmas as my pal has just taken over a croft outside of Aultbea. Smile

Very well observed and so very well photographed, processed and presented. Love the contrast in both colour and textures Dougie.

Really nice contrast between the naturally monotone pebbles and that splash of russet seaweed. I also like the way that the textures are so well picked out by the light Dougie. Fine work my friend.

The wee things that add colour and beauty to our lives.
Well seen, and well taken image. Like the diagonal design.

Now why has this attracted so many comments when pictures elsewhere get none. One of the great misteries, and a major problem with this section! I fear I'm the exception, I just cannot see a picture. What is the subject?
