Windswept Blue   Ardessie, Dundonnell, Scotland

As a rule I am not a great admirer of extreme wide angle lenses as I dislike the distortion associated with their use, but on a very few occasions I find a subject that just seems to suit it.  So despite the banana shaped horizon and the stretched appearance of the boat and the curve of the staves supporting it in the face of gales a blowin' in, I believe ts use to be justified, even appropriate, the windswept tree and the plumes of clouds all serve to emphasise the open bleak nature of this cold image.
