Sandstone Caves Cummingston   Cummingston, Moray, Scotland

This beautiful ochre wave of sandstone bedrock lies deep within one of moray's fabulous sea caves.  You have to be extremely careful with your tides so that you don't end up trapped inside and you only get about an hour before you really need to vacate.  The contrast is surprisingly high due to light leakage from the outside world and the pebbles piled up against the bedrock are still wet from the previous tide.  Spooky but compelling and the colours are out of this world.  Incidentally I had to allow for significant reciprocity failure for Fuji Velvia film.
