Cove Bay

Hopeman, Moray

I should really title this "Ian's Place",
as the location is a favourite of Ian Cameron.
It is a very special place where the sunset only reaches into the cove
at this time of year when it sets far enough round in the Northern sky.
On this evening it was particularly dramatic under the frown of a passing shower.
The light only lasted 30 seconds or so, but that was just long enough to grab this shot.

Nikon D80 ,Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM
0.60s f/22.0 at 11.5mm iso100. Circular polariser, ND8 Grad filters full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

I can confirm IC is delighted to see such a wonderful version of one of my very favourite spots well done Stuart, even a bit of drama in the sky.

An extraordinary shot! You've got the contrast between the rain clouds and the sunlit rocks expertly exposed - agree, there's a real sense of drama and nature's power in this image. Good work! V.

Ooh, I like this! Great golden tones.
Very strange sense of scale, could be tiny or vast!
