In this second batch of photographs (of the river that results from the water of Loch of Kirbister draining seawards through Skaith and the salt marsh, before running across the sandy beach at Waulkmill Bay on Mainland Orkney) the sky had become cloudier affecting the reflections, and wind speed had picked up, giving a different appearance to the surface water texture and ripple patterns. The rapid transitions of the water surface texture caused by the wind, light, and counter-flow were difficult to capture but I think a bit more successful than the first batch.
