Sand Cakes Hosta   Hosta, North Uist, Scotland

There were a lot of sand sculpted patterns on Hosta beach on this particular evening and with a satsuma sunset starting to develop I wanted to find a suitable two dimensional patterned foreground to show it off.  I eventually came across this area complete with a pattern of sand pancakes which just caught the setting sun to help them stand out against the shaded blue rippled sand adjacent.  I waited for the sun to weaken behind the cloud and when the contrast subsided I took my shot.
