Another from an outing to Porthor beach on the Llyn peninsula. I think the yellow pebbles in the foreground look a bit like gold nuggets (I wish!) hence the title. Hope you like it.

F22, 1.8 sec, Lens @ 12 mm, ISO 200, ND grad filter.

Please view...Large...if you can.

Many thanks for your comments on my last upload, very much appreciated.

Regards to you all, Tony.
