Good day to you all

Thank you so much to you all for the marvellous response to yesterdays upload 'Chilling Reflections'. A special thank you goes to ColeenW (Coleen) for her Guest Editors Award, and a further mentioned going to Rayme330(Ray) and Irishkate(Kate) for their most appreciated User Awards.

Todays upload was captured on a rather wet and windswept beach at Allhallows which is on the tip of the Hoo Peninsula. I managed to capture several shots before I finally gave into the weather, and these will be shown over the next few days or so.

I hope that you have a great day, for me I shall be taking things easy after a rather bad night.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

As soon as they all land there will be a cacophony of noise as they all have a go at each other before settling down.

Hi Nathan,
This is a most intriguing image that is superbly composed.
I like the foreground chingle textures and the way the birds occupy various positions in the image thus reducing empty areas...
Very lovely to look at... Grin
