Bright Moon rising over the Saligo dunes, Isle of Islay

After watching a sunset on the west coast of Islay I stayed out on the beach in Saligo Bay to enjoy the beautiful light of the gloaming. Just as I was thinking about leaving I spotted the full Moon rising over the dunes. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but I hope it at least gives you an idea of the beautiful sight of the Moon coming up behind the dunes.

A June late evening on the west coast of Islay, a few days before the summer solstice. After sunset the beach and rocks and cliffs in and around Saligo Bay are still visible in the beautiful mild light of the gloaming.

A panoramic view from a bit further back than the one between rocks and dunes at Saligo Bay. Stitched together from several pictures we see more of the dunes and a small stream of water flowing through the dunes out to the beach.
