Strathy Beach and Strathy Point.
One of the many fabulous beaches in NW Scotland. If this was on the south coast of England, you would not see much of the beach itself! I think the water here may be slightly cooler, though.

I suppose some people might think the almost 50/50 split does not suit the image, but It works for me as we get to appreciate the scale of the beach and off round to the hills in the distance, giving us the chance to enjoy the north of Scotland at its colourful best.

A beach as good as this needs to be shown off and you have achieved that here.
There is still enough emphasis on Strathy Point, the hills and that lovely little Bothy to keep me busy exploring the shot.
I like it a lot, well done.
On what looks like a path from sed Bothy, is that a blue tent and a GU in a red anorak ?

A super shot Alan, golden sand blue sky sunshine , a gentle breeze deserted beach & a view of the hills with the tiny cottages darted here and there. What more could one ask for.

The 50/50 split works okay for me too, nice clear shot with lots of detail, a very deserted beach, not at all like Bournemouth beach on a warm summers day, (thankfully).

As you might have guessed the 50/50 split fails to work for me. Sorry Alan, perhaps something on the beach like a large piece of driftwood to the lower right third would catch the eye better taking away the sort of split with a sort of barren beach and a not too interesting sky. I can see that it is the lack of detail on the beach and in the sky which probably prevented you from majoring on one or the other which is why I suggest the foreground interest.

Looking at the comments above all I can say it works for me, nice image well taken
