Always an amazing sight, the thousands of Barnacle Geese wintering on Islay lifting off after having been spooked by something, may be a raptor, may be a human getting too close, anything.

No idea what kind of rocks these are, but I found them quite interesting, some nice shapes and waves in them. Found on a beach on the west side of Loch Gruinart at Ardnave. Mala Bholsa visible in the distance in the centre, one of the Paps of Jura towards the right.
