We stop and admire the view at Kylescu, on our way to Sandwood Bay.
Ollie and Anna came up the weekend before last. The weather was good and they decided to go climbing on the sea cliffs at Sandwood Bay. This is a staggeringly beautiful remote windswept bit of coast, often empty. The nine mile walk needed to get there and back deters many, but the effort is so worth while. These photos are straight out of the camera. The light and colour (that I'm always banging on about!) was stunning. Clear and sharp.
and the tide coming in!

I can see them both at the top
The triumphant return
Climbing over, Anna concentrates on her camera. The wind has got up and it's getting late.
I try not to mess about too much with my pictures but the dramatic tone on the camera suits this landscape so well, I couldn't resist..!
We did this walk but no climbing! Can't beat the open space!
Your photos are so remarkable. Always enjoy visiting here.
This is how it looks. I had a quick walk in driving rain so it's good to see what I missed.
That beach reminds us so much of a summer holiday in Denmark so many years ago at Sjaelands Odde. Long sweeps of light sand set in grassy dunes and a calm, flat sea. No wonder Niels feels at home in your part of the world. The Thains
As ever, awestruck by where you live and how active you are!
How did you do that clever thing with the moving photograph of the waves?
Thank you Rachel, though I'm often not that active! I'd got the frame rate set on the camera to something like 5 frames per second (I can't remember now)Then for a change I uploaded my photos into Google+ which I don't really like very much, but Google+ put the series of frames together when I posted them onto my blog. I didn't ask it to - it just did it. I must hold the camera still next time! Hope this makes sense?!
Worth the wait! The quality of the light really comes through.
