Waves at the Westing
Waves at the Westing
Looking over the Westing beach and the cottage at the north end. In the background a large wave in North Sound, the narrow passage between Lang Holm and the mainland of Unst. The sea here is very obviously very shallow and presumably recently flooded as any heavy sea produces impressive waves in the sound.
