Islay: Kilnaughton Bay by Kasia-D

Taking a late afternoon walk on the beach at Kilnaughton Bay, Islay. The water in the foreground is from the wee burn that flows in to the sea across the beach. Mainland Scotland is just visible in the background. I loved the contrast of the elements between sky, sand and water.

Location: Kilnaughton Bay, island of Islay, Scotland.
Nikon D200, 18-200mm F/3,5-6,3G, 22mm, F/10, 1/750s, ISO 200. Captured in RAW. Tonal, contrast and other fine adjustments in PS.
