Simply magnificent Andy. Wonderful tones and light. Terrific foreground and I love the silhouetted detail of the pier and the way it leads the eye back to the horizon.

I've had a gold star in my pocket for a little while, just waiting for the right image to come along.
This is it, Andy!
Quality of light, composition, shooting technique, processing technique, colour balance, mood; it's got it all!
Ticks all the boxes for me
It's beaten all the other twelve images on my current shortlist (including another of yours and some other photo-luminaries!).
I hope it does well on here for you.

Cheers, mate!

Stunning shot Andy - Something very strange has happened today, I was in the gym with Ian talking about somewhere to go to take photographs and I mentioned this pier, although I did say Aberystwyth by mistake, Ian response was strange how Andy hasn't got a shot of it...

Edit: Looks like Ian beat me to it. Think it'll be on our list of shots now.
Congratulations on the awards...
