Saligo Bay, Islay


Saligo Bay lies on the west coast of Islay and is a versatile place for seascape photography. The beach is a mixture of sand and huge rocky outcrops which jut out into the clear aqua seas.

I arrived on the beach as a strong westerly wind was driving the waves ashore. The sun was shining on my arrival but the cloud soon began to increase creating a much more moody atmosphere. I love these rocky outcrops – they are so full of life and character and are screaming out to be photographed.

I spent a long time trying to catch the waves crashing against the rocky platform, trying to convey the drama and energy of being on the beach in the wind.
