North Uist: Sea Thrift Carpet by 

Lenticularis clouds over the rocky, barren landscape formed by the scouring action of ice-age.

The tide was out to reveal this typical coastal landscape with a carpet of pink sea thrift flowers (Armeria maritima) which live in the salty marshy land along the coast and are often covered by sea water at high tide.

Location: Carinish, North Uist (Cairinis, Uibhist a Tuath), Outer Hebrides, Scotland, UK.
Nikon D200, Sigma 18-200mm with Cokin Grey Grad filter. Captured in RAW. Post-pro adjustment of contrasts, etc. and slight straightening in CS4 with NikColorEfex.

    Kasia, this must be a unique corner and makes your shot so valuable!!

    I had never know about the tide receding and showing a carpet of pink sea thrift flowers. These flowers must have such an incredible life… one moment beneath the sea, the next under the sunshine.
    It is SO beautiful!!!

  • Beatrice, thank you SO much, my friend. You’ll find similar scenes all over the isles in early summer. But I must admit this was a particularly large area of pinks, in combination with the rocks, winding riverlet and the sky was pretty unique and amazing to enjoy. And I was lucky that the light was just perfect for capturing it too. Kasia
