      Alf,
      They're all good. The Dunstanburgh image reminds me of a time (25+ years ago) when we walked that path during an easterly October gale. Large lumps of foam were being blown right over all the stones and landing many yards beyond in the field. A great day but very chilly!

          Thanks Chris the breeze was rather cool on the way back when we were walking into it.
          I have seen the sea covered in foam with it blowing onto the land many times.
          I have also seen it covered in pure white foam 6 or 8 feet deep due to the local soap factory which did contrast against the filth of the loacl pit.

          Thanks Yorkie.
          I will give Sellafield a miss with the camera I can do without the hassle and we get plenty of orchids locally.

              You certainly had a varied weekend, Alf, very nice images indeed.
              The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

                    Great capture of one of the country's most beautiful coastlines. Now if they could just do something about that lazy wind!

                        all good but the 1st does it for me even if I needed to reduce my screen to 50% to see the whole image

                        1st is nicely done

                          Very nice, Alf. Well composed, great light and just the right amount of movement in the water.
