Traigh Mhor, Harris, Scotland

Just prior to an Atlantic storm bursting onto Traigh Mhor beach some of the finest light I have ever experienced washed over its golden sands and turned the islands beyond to burnished gold. After three shots I was forced to shelter the camera from driving rain and just one of those exposures was timed perfectly to the peak traverse of a breaking wave acting as a line to the horizon beyond.

Pentax 67II, 55-100 zoom, 0.3ND grad, f/22 at 2 Seconds, Velvia.
