New on 500px : Talisker Bay, Isle of Skye, Scotland by melvinnicholsonphotography by melvinnicholsonphotography

Talisker Bay is quite remarkable due to its black sand. The medium sized bay flanked on both sides by steep cliffs and a 100ft waterfall very much looks like the beaches of Iceland. I found a rather large wooden section of a tree that I thought that it would make a great subject to shoot and indeed I believe that it does.

New on 500px : Glacial Ice Succumbing To The Sea by MikeBerenson by MikeBerenson

At the end of a life of thousands of years on Europe’s largest icecap, glacial ice chunks spend their final days wrestling with the surf of the cold North Atlantic. It was impressive seeing all the ice chunks lined up on the black sand beach making one final stand against the forces of nature.

They put up a good fight against the never-ending onslaught of waves, but even with Iceland’s colder temperatures, I knew they wouldn’t last long…

There is a lot more to this post… see the rest of the backstory, how I got the shot, and get free wallpaper from http://ift.tt/RIaBiS.
