Sand or Snow?

A picture of some dunes in shadow. The white sand of many of the local beaches is partially attributed to crunched-up shells. Not exactly sure where this photo was taken - the Flickr tags attribute it to Berneray and North Uist. Storms, and especially the hurricane of January 2005, have a way of reshaping the dunescape of these islands.



  1. Yes the west beach on Berneray. Its close to the end.

  2. It was on Berneray. I was told it was called the Queen's beach - the big long one.
