Took this last night at Porthor beach on the Llyn Peninsula, my second outing with this new lens, on the first outing I fell into a rock pool and cracked my head! luckily the camera stayed drier than I did.

F20, 2.2 sec, Lens @ 12 mm, ISO 200, ND grad filter.

Hope you like it, and please view..LARGE..if you can.

Many thanks for your comment and clicks on my last upload.

All the best, Tony

Almost looks like a mono foreground and a coloured sky, but the small amount of colour in the rocks keeps it looking natural. Good capture of the suns rays on the clouds.
