Sunset on the beach

By Nettles  
On the last night of a recent trip abroad I decided to try and get some sunset shots on the beach.
Although I had to wait for quite a while to get the sun behind the cliffs, I eventually managed to fire a few off and on one of them thankfully this couple came into the scene.

Thanks for the comments on the cow behind the tree, I wish I'd put it up for modifications as I think some of you could have had fun with it on a very wet Sunday. One suggestion was a two headed cow which would have been great fun.

I went all the way to Bempton Cliffs today to get some Puffin shots but the sea mist was so thick I couldn't see a damned thing, so I had to settle for a garden centre instead - boo hoo.

Good ''monochromatic'' look too.
Excellent shot.

Nice colour and great shot with the people. I went to Northumberland and visited "Farne Islands" and get loads and loads of shots of Guillemot's and other birds and especially puffins....whom I adore. Since the holiday we have lost the hard drive which was external and all the photo's have gone.
Keep yours very safe.
