Scarista waves

I paid a few visits to Scarista beach when I was staying on the Isle of Harris. It is a wonderful beach with very few people and the most amazing waves breaking onto the steep beach shelf. I spent hours wandering along the shore in awe of the power and beauty of the sea.

The other thing that caught my attention was the amount of water on the beach. There was so much water coming in on the waves that it couldn’t soak into the sand and so there were some lovely reflections and water patterns on the beach.

The waves are incredibly clean with hardly any residual sand. It was possible to see the bottom of the sea refracted through the water just before the waves broke.
