    Big Sand

    Big Sand is a village in NW Scotland. There probably only about 40 houses some of which are virtually on the huge sandy beach.

    This was taken yesterday at the end of a near perfect late winter's day.

    All comment welcomed.

    I like the color palette, the lighting, the perspective. Really nice.

    I haven't stood there for quite a few years.

    Beautiful light, Dave. And, I think, the composition is just spot-on. You're getting better weather up there than we are.

    Thank you Chris and Donald.

    I had planned it from earlier in the day but, as always, there is a quite a bit of luck involved.

    I spent about an hour there and was alone apart from a dog who came to say hello, followed me and sat down whenever I stopped, until he decided that I was not interesting enough and left.

    If it is any consolation Donald, it is now raining and blowing a gale.

    Dave this is a beauty for shure. Have you tried taking this in the morning? The shadows in the evening light are pointing away from the town and out of the frame. In the morning , i think they might help point the viewer to the town. (Or maybe not, depending on how the sun is tracking ) Just a thought.
