More from the archives. This January has been the dullest I think I can ever remember. Never mind it's given me time to work on my site.

This is Cornwall again but not taken with my usual wide angle lens...so a bit different from the norm for me.

All comments welcome.

Maybe would have liked a slightly faster shutter to sharpen up the splash....but plenty else to like in this.

This is an absolute belter Helen! The light & colour are fantastic. Perhaps a lightly faster shutter would bring more detail to the wave hit but this is a minor point to what is a cracking image.

VERY nice!! That spray in the foreground is the icing on the cake.

A summer shot from the angleof the sun, but which month was this taken?

This is a dull Jan, but then last year, we did not see the sun till the middle of March.

Love the rays of light coming from the sun hidden behind the clouds. You also timed this to perfection as the wave crashes into the rock, catching the moment of impact.
