Hi, turned round from a shot of the lighthouse and while the sun was coming up managed to capture this one, I liked the way the sun hit the rocks and brought out the textures.
Hope you like it.

seems the 10-20 is the lens to get, did u catch the landscape bug from 'WOOLY'?

u seem to be as adept at this as u are @ macro work, i dont know what u do for a living but if its not something in art and/or photography, i can safely say in my limited experience, that your wasted.

keep up the good work
