Same shoot as Distant Horizon. Taken about 45mins. after dawn looking to the Northern horizon with an incoming tide rolling up onto the East beach at Lossiemouth, Moray Scotland. The beach is relatively steep here near the high tide mark and fast pull-backs captured at a fairly slow shutter produce some beautiful foam patterns
