Incoming, Traigh Mhòr - Isle of Lewis

Traigh Mhòr (“Big Beach”) is a two mile long white sand beach on the east coast of the Isle of Lewis, popular with surfers, but in early spring often deserted.

Taken just around lunchtime with an incoming tide, only my footprints disturbed the entire beach. A mid-March wind whipped up spray almost as dense as rain. In no time I was soaked and the visibility dropped to just a few hundred metres. An eerie experience with just the wind, the tide, and a few gulls.
