Warning of the presence of a dangerous sandbank the clang of the bell in the buoy off Nash Point provides a slightly eery accompaniment to the crashing waves.

Nice to see a sea that's not all milky and retains drama to match the sky. It's pretty spectacular!

The sentiment in the title matches the apocalyptical scene. Beautifully done, Alun.

Love the texture in the sea Alun - not too smooth and not too rough. Excellent light and an eery story too!

Thanks. Nash Point can be a dangerous place as this link explains: Nash Point although the pertinent info for this image is as follows from the same link:

Quote: In March 1831 the Frolic with Captain Edward Jenkins in command was returning to Bristol from Haverfordwest.

She was making her way round Nash Point when she struck hard into a sandbank. There were no survivors.

The exact number of people onboard were never ascertained but was thought to be about 55.

There were at least 40 passengers including high ranking Officers and one Gerneral as well as some important Pembrokeshire merchants. The public outcry which followed the disaster prompted the planning and building of two lighthouses on Nash Point.

Thanks a lot my friends. Cheers Dougie. That would be unduly ironic (shiver runs down spine) Tongue
Big thanks to Yung for his coveted UA - really chuffed.
