My first visit to Calanais but hopefully not my last. There was a constant stream of visitors but I noticed that few stayed long. I wanted to capture the atmosphere of this wonderful site, and a long exposure felt perfect to soften the sky and balance the harsh stone. Although many of the stones have great features, this stone had an intriguing flowing texture.
An early evening stroll into a bracing wind on the beach at Newburgh, Aberdeenshire. I was looking for the seals which bask on the sands here, but the sand being blown across the beach in the strong wind couldn't help cacthing my attention. The conflict between the flow of the River Ythan with the rising tide was etching patterns into the sand at the water's edge. And the seals? You can just make out two groups of seals on the far shore of the river to the left of the image, just below the horizon.
