Broken tombolo

This is the world-famous tombolo, or double-sided beach, between St Ninian's Isle and Bigton in the south mainland of Shetland.
On Sunday, for the first time in my experience, the sea had broken through the spit of sand - combination of high tide and stormy weather - though it was still possible to cross to the island, albeit with wet feet.
The long term commercial extraction of sand from the beach has, of course, nothing whatsoever to do with it... Posted by Picasa
