I took these at the beach just as the light was going - They were a little too far away to for me to get a decent shots especially hand held.

Plese view large if you have the time. -

I was struck by the light on the birds and the reflections in the sand and the beauty of the scene.
I couldnt get the sea as I would like - any suggestions.
Thank you all for the critique and clicks for Sheffield Park pictures - always most appreciated

A trio of terrific captures Ray. Lovely light, detail and wave movement in V1, super inflight action in V2 and golden light on the Godwits in V3. Very marginally V1 for me.

Good work with these three captures, Ray. I have exactly the same gear & I know hadheld shots are not easy because of the combined weight but you've managed to get some nice detail. You seem to have caught the waves quite well, too. V3 is my choice.

Enjoyed the birds on the wing in this series and the sea breaking on the beach makes for a good backdrop. The low light in V3 works a treat. V1 is my favourite and good to see these shots you captured on the beach. Smashing.
