I liked the way the colours mixed in this shot of the sunset from the beach last night.
An ongoing series of photos taken around the Benderloch area of the Scottish West Highlands. If you would like more information about the area, including tourist and "where to stay" info please visit the Benderloch website - link on sidebar. Enjoy the pictures, and remember that if you click on a picture a larger version will open. Steve.

Through the conifers on the way to the beach.
Just above the shingle east end of the beach was this group of late flowering narcissi, dramatic against the changing sky colours.
Still in the shingle area, a low-level HDR shot where the green of the seaweed adds a nice counter to the oranges and yellows.
The sun disappears over the hills of Morvern.
I liked this scene enough to make a pencil sketch and took the photo as an afterthought when the effect was fading.
The pencil sketch of the view.

Finally, more thrift on lichen covered rocks.

Promontory looking across the bay.
The picture shows the recently resurfaced track by the car park in the centre of Benderloch. Its hard to imagine that there used to be a railway station here.
There's an article about development of the cycle track here and about the railway line here.
This is just about all that can be seen of the station platform today.
