Hidden Treasure   Cove Bay, Moray, Scotland

The Moray coast is blessed with some of the most beautiful sandstone mix of rocks and stones that I have seen anywhere in Scotland and they are at their very best in Moray's spectacular sea caves where the colours of the stones, algaes and staining seem to be on steroids.  Thia edifice really caught my attention not just for the rich vein of colour but also the patterns revealed in the sand and stone where light spills through the mouth of the cave.  Exposure times are often 30 seconds or more and graduated filters are often placed up side down to shape the spilt light appropriately.
