Gneiss and Easy   Traigh Mhor, Harris, Scotland

A beautiful soft sunset evening at the orange sandy beach of Traigh Mhor one of my very favourite beaches in the UK.  Half submerged gneiss rocks were at the right tidal level to provide a backstop for the swirling water to run around on the retreating wave.  I confined my exposure time to start at the exact moment the wave front stopped moving and had begun to sink into the sand to produce a sharp line on the sand with a seductively smooth and linear pull back toward the sea over a few seconds duration.
