Findhorn Firestorm

Findhorn, Moray, Scotland

Staggeringly beautiful summer light exploded over the fishing town of Burghead reflecting off the sea shortly after an epic sunrise at Findhorn beach. I wanted some foreground interest that gave the location more of a sense of place so used the black posted groyne silhouetted against the sky to cement the location.


Hi Ian,

What a sky! The warm colour and the glowing light reflecting in the water are sensational.

Did you de-saturate the blues in your processing? The water in the shadow of the wave and some of the clouds appear grey.

Stunning color Ian and lovely silky wave action too.

Spectacular! Obviously the sky but I also really like the overall composition and really think the texture in the rocky/sandy beach works well. Congratulations on a great image!

Very strong mood of serenity, Ian, beautifully composed with just enough interest in the fg to offset that remarkably colourful sky. You can almost hear the waves gently lapping on the beach.
