Robin Rigg from Mersehead at Low Tide

The Robin Rigg wind farm shot was taken on the shoreline south of the Mersehead RSPB nature reserve that lies to the west of Southerness in Dumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland. The view is looking due south towards the Robin Rigg wind farm in the Solway Firth. I was struck by the old timber posts in the sand that to me mimicked the wind farm in the distance and provided a good foreground interest for the shot. The late afternoon light was coming from the right as you look at the picture and I waited until the cloud drifted across the top right of the frame so that the dark cloud balanced the bright light from that side, which helps to hold your eye in the picture.
