Polbain View Point   Polbain, Inverpolly, Scotland

Just before the beach at Polbain there is a viewpoint which permits you to look across the chain of islands known as the Summer Isles.  On this late winter afternoon the sun was low enough and strong enough to carve its way through some lumpy cloud and turn the water silvery such that the islands silhouetted.  By carefully using a couple of staggered hard grads I was able to see as per my own eyes the illuminated grass and foreground rocks so that they too weren't rendered as silhouettes.
