This shot nearly didn't get posted because I just couldn't get the colour balance right. I really wanted to put the colour version of this shot up – the contrast between the warmth of the sand and the rich blueness of the sky should have been stunning – but it just didn't work. And I don't know why, it just didn't look right. So, and I guess I'm quite pleased about this really, here's a colorised version that I think is much better – more balanced, and quite a bit more dramatic.
