Another shot from my recent trip to South Ayrshire coast. As I said before - weather was very whimsy that day so I focused on exploring the beach to find some nice foreground - that could compensate the lack of interesting light. I found this strange stone, covered with loads of green seaweeds. My first impression was it reminded me of a Davy Jones face (Flying Dutchamn's captain from Pirates of Caribbean movie) :) - and it was my first title for this shot - "Davy Jones on Vacation" :D
Then I realized some of you may not get my message, so changed it for a easy one :)
Finally at the end of a day the Sun broke through the clouds offering a great array of colours in the sky.
I used CPL filter (to cut off some water reflections) + 0.9 GND HE filter to balance the exposure. No other photoshop action was necessary.
Hope you'll like it

Hi Piotr, good technique and use of appropriate filters to obtain this beautful shot. Composition is strong and expsoure is well handled. I love your frank and honest notes with your posts as they tell how it is somtimes with landscapes, you know the wasted journeys and "The Patience of Job" we all need. Very well done.
