A cloudy and moody November morning on Kilchoman beach on Machir Bay on the west coast of Islay. The old wreck sticking out of the sand in front of the crags and hills stretching into the distance in the south.
One of the lowest tides I can recall in Machir Bay, possibly the lowest I’ve ever experienced. On the left the wreck of the Patti sticking out of the sand, I estimate the water was at least 50 metres (one Olympic swimming pool I believe is the standard comparison) away. Normally it’s just a few feet away from the wreck at low tide. Taken on the last day of my June holiday on Islay.
