Traigh Nisabost - Moody Morning

Traigh Nisabost - Moody Morning - The Outer Hebrides
February 2014

This was a pretty foul morning, I arrived on the beach well before sunrise but it quickly became apparent that I would be lucky to see the horizon let alone come home with any useful images!

After a soaking and a quick recce along the dunes I decided to move to the far side of this wonderful beach and explore the interesting rock formations while the tide began to come in with a view to capturing some details.

For a brief moment Ceapabhal emerged from the gloom and I adopted a very low viewpoint amongst the rocks in order to exaggerate the perspective somewhat and emphasise the natural lead in line towards the water.
