Re: North Sea images

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.

Love the leading lines on the first one, but all are excellent.

Re: North Sea images

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

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

No 1 is an absolute cracker and I couldn't even begin to tell you how it could be improved.
