... that's what I beat shortly after this was taken. The tide was supposed to be on its way out, but every now and again a large surge came in and unsettled me a little Grin

Another that's been sat on the hard drive for a while, decided to dust it off and give it an airing Wink

Cheers for looking in folks, weekend's here so enjoy it ... keep safe though.

How the hell can you leave a shot like this on the hard drive. it should be shared with as many peeps as possible. This is an absolutely stunning capture Paul. One of the best I've seen on EPZ for a while. Quite a bold statement I hear you say....perhaps so, but then a bold shot as good as this deserves such a statement. Right enough of that, I need a beer

Seriously good photography

Mike
