Well its taken about 6 years for me to go and take a photo of the statues but I finally did it last night! Met with some super moody light when I arrived........the mood caught up though and turned into a massive downpour!! Good way of clearing the beach though hehe.. Had a good hour aferwards back out on the sand after the rain clouds blew over.

A bitter sweet evening though as my mate was in a car crash en route to join me.. she is sore but car written off Sad

Met some folk at sunset who know many mutual photo friends... small world!

This is a lovely capture, the colours and figure work well, however would crop the top , about 1/5, it would move the horizon up and I think it would further improve the composition.

Hope your mate is ok Jeanie....forget the car she is more important.
This is a fine place when the conditions are right.
Excellent work and worth the wait until after the storm.
Tom.

Thats exactly what I said, Tom.
She is a trooper and I am sure she will come through.. although a bit in a Codeine induced haze today no doubt!

The conditions were super last night Tom.. itching to go back now hehe. Smile

Well worth the 6 year wait. The light and colours are exquisite.

SO glad your friend came out of that crash not at all like the car did...*phew*.

All the best to her and a speedy recovery.

An extremely good land/seascape photograph, full of natural colour, detail, and light.

Hoped to go there when we were in Liverpool a week or two ago, but not a chance, total rain!! Would have loved for it to have been like this though.
Hope your friend has a speedy recovery.

Somewhere I have yet to visit and like this a lot. Best wishes to Amanda too....my wife would share her pain as her car was written off a couple of weeks ago.....and she only got it two months ago. Luckily she too came out with just bruises and a bit of whiplash Smile
