Hive Beach

By Mike Gray  
Best viewed large

Image taken on Monday, when i got an invite from Maddie, Hayley and Dionne asking did i want to come out and play. So the boss let me out for a while. Had some great fun and the weather was perfect apart from the mist which is to the right of the image and the back end of Portland has vanished. love the small wave that just hit the rocks as i pressed the shutter.
Now using a 1D MKII N and finding it a very different and much better camera, its bloody heavy too.

Thanks for looking and your comments,
PS sorry i have not been around much due to work and weddings.

The golden light on the cliff is most attractive.

Like the wave that seems to have come from nowhere, nice reflection of the cliffs too.

I don't think the mist detracts from the image one little bit. A nice shot and good comp!

I've looked at both, this one is my personal favourite as it has the lovely reflections.
I believe your new camera has better waterproofing, looks as if you put it to the test.
