I spent a week away with hubby last week camping in Scotland and this was the sight that greeted us driving through Banff one evening as we were heading from Fraserburgh back to our campsite in Findhorn.

We learnt from locals that the Scottish term for sea mist is the haar. I'm glad I managed to get the shot before the wind turbines in the distance were totally covered over, as it was rolling in fast and the coastline was totally hidden from view.

Quite an interesting shot, I think those wind turbines look nice in the background, quite nice composition as well, good job :)

Thank you! :) It was one of those moments that couldn't be missed. It's a shame that a photo doesn't capture the eerie silence that seemed to fall upon the land at the time.
