 Talisker Bay, by Andrew Jones

"I'd curtailed a visit to this beach the previous day, when on arriving at the nearby car park one of the many photographic groups that tour Skye at this time of year had already arrived and I didn't much fancy competing for a position on the beach. The next day, I arrived to an empty beach and so set up at this particular spot. A few minutes later, a photographic tour group of about 10 people arrived at the beach! Fortunately they were very considerate and carefully kept out of my field of view for the composition I had set up. I decided the best strategy was to stay at this spot and allow the changing weather conditions to provide the variety in my shots."
