Carrey,

This picture carries over quite some vastness and
a (romantic) feeling of loneliness. The deep black
of the hills and the contrast to the light sky make a
very graphic impression, counterbalanced by the
grey of the sand and the grey of the rest of the sky.
I like that a lot.

Marc.

Very nice -- seems almost like it should have an inspirational quote somewhere on it!

Thanks for the kind words both of you.

"Fionn mac Cumhaill" aka "Finn McCool" is the mythical Gaelic giant who built the Giant's Causeway in Co Antrim N.Ireland as stepping-stones to Scotland and gave his name to Fingal's Cave on the Isle of Staffa off the West coast of Scotland.

I came across these footprints on the otherwise deserted beach at Scarista on the Isle of Harris.

Excellent shot made better by the treatment (b&w). Really nice composition. I particularly like how you can see, even if barely, the footprints fading into the distance, leading your eye to the horizon ... and keeping this from seeming like a "staged" single footprint shot.

I like the subversion of scale, it has a surreal quality. My absolute favourite. Best of luck to you.

A beautifully well done image, and dramatic tones. Good luck on the voting!
