    Great selection of pictures - preferring the last two sites but they all have fantastic shots. :)

    Thanks guys! <3

    Hiked to Sandwood bay this evening, what I consider to be one of the best beaches in the UK - however it's a 10 mile round hike, so there's hardly ever anyone where - which makes it great for photography, trying to make the best of gloomy stormy weather, incoming low front from the west made for some darker more moody shots, the water and sand in these areas has some amazing colours that come out great in longer exposures,

    Great shots!
    If was was really picky to the second photo I'd suggest to compose it so the foreground interest (those stones) slightly closer to the bottom right corner somehow to balance out the cliffs in the top left. Love the soft waves trace a lot though.

    ps. just looked it up on the map, damn thats far! Jealous! The furthest I ever made it in Scotland to was the Isle of Skye. Was very tempted to get to the Isle of Harris but the weather was absolute crap so it never happened.

    750miles?

    Respect, but did you know the area before you set off at all?

    Yeah, I've been up here quite a lot - been coming ever since I was about 10, I spend most of my days either working from home with no commute, so for me to get out and do a big drive is actually pretty fun,

    Had another crack at Sandwood bay tonight, nice sunset - spent ages climbing around in the dunes trying to find a spot, had the place to myself again which was nice :)

    This is awesome! Hard to believe the consistency of decent weather you're getting in Scotland :)

    What a beautiful place! Such a good thing that it's a real trek to get to as well. It looks so pristine.

    Thanks for the kind comments,

    Been on the Isle of Harris for the past few days, just sat on the ferry at Stornoway waiting to set sail, ******* starving I wish they'd start serving food :p

    Couple from my 2 day camping trip at Luskentyre beach (an amazing place)

    Had a lazy bank holiday, went for a nice trip down to Bognor Regis (lol) never been there and it's only 30 miles south of here, a bit rough :p I quite liked the rocks on the sea defences though, I recently bought a tripod sling and a decent bag, so managed to haul my gear through endless hoards of drunken, ranting bald-headed lads onto the beach - which was actually quite nice, except for the ominous shadow of Butlins - which looks more like a concentration camp than a holiday resort :p

    Just been going through some of my pics from Iceland last year, found a couple of alternate panos that I overlooked last year, really want to go back again - not sure I'll make it this year, but it was amazing in June. I think I might camp rather than pay insane money for hotels, it will also be way more convenient as I must have driven about 1000 miles going back and forth between hotels last time... Taking photographs from 9pm until 4am was pretty surreal..

    What amazing scenery and it looks like the sand is all black - volcanic? How amazing. Was it cold? The clouds looks serenely hypnotic. Truly beautiful. It's definitely a place to see.

    Yes the sand is black - it's amazing, it's volcanic, in June it wasn't that cold - I had a jacket on, maybe 7-8 degrees or so, (this was in June)

    Amazing shots. I've always wanted to do a photography trip to Iceland - it looks absolutely breathtaking. Summer is a great idea too as I don't think I would deal with the winter there too well!
