This one is for the very nice family I met today on the beach. They took 5 minutes out of ther day to ask about 5 minutes of mine. They will perhaps never see this shot. Today was long over due, have spent way to much time at work over the last few weeks. All the extra hours did have one benifit, a Sigma 10-20 lens.........very nice.

Back to the shot, it was 7.15am, and was a bit mad with myself as overslept, missed the most stunning red sunrise, the only consilation was as I drove East, I got to see it. I stood alone on the most stunning beach, they sand fresh from all the rain on Friday. I felt so alive in the fresh air.

Sorry havent had alot of time to look over all your work, will catch up soon......hope you enjoy, and as always thanks for your comments.

Paul.

Big big composition with the new Sigma lens and it's spectacular with that sky, this is really good work.

Good use of the wide angle and long exposure, Paul. The effect on the clouds looks good and keeping the sun to the side of the image makes a fine composition.

A great piece of work, the lens certainly comes into its own with pieces of this nature. Wonderfully exposed, which provides a rather dreamy and soft image, certainly one of which I admire greatly

Hi Paul
No looking back now tou have that lens. That feeling of being away from the crowds in the great outdoors but with a sense of purpose is really life enhancing. Beautiful elements in the shot. That w/a will always render subjects that loom large to the eyes as miniscule features like the buoy in my Nash Pt shots which is really big in reality. That's why it's often about fg and getting in very close to your visual anchor closest to the lens. The glass can be a few feet from it. Here the fg boulder appears cropped a bit tight at the bottom of the frame and silhouetted. Shadows are of course important but the Siggie could have shown more detail had it been a bit closer. Anyway, the image has lovely elements and great mood. Enjoy the lens.

Paul this is one of the best images I have seen from you, the composition, the long exposure giving movement to the clouds and glorious light on the wet sand combine to make this a wonderful image. Top notch.

Paul, this is probably the best shot I have seen of yours, the composition, long exposure allowing us to see the movement in the clouds and the wonderful light on the wet sand combine to make this a truly lovely image. Congrats, a really top notch image.

The warm tones from the early morning sunlight look great Paul, and with the added bonus of the 10 stop filter adds another dimension to this wonderful panoramic image with great effect. You will have to set the alarm clock just a little bit earlier my friend,LOL, Wonderful result from the new lens, it was worth all of the hard work to earn it. Well done, Bill.
