Sunset at Southerndown

By jules41
For the first time in ages i had a great day out taking pictures,joined by Proberts(Andrew),Kev Lewis,Adam Burton and Adams friend(sorry forgot your name :o),so this was the push i needed to get out there once again.

We went down to Southerndown for the sunset.I parked my Bum at a rockpool,coffee and blueberry muffin in hand, and tried to get as many different compositions using that pool as i could.So this will be a small mini series of the pics i got using the same rock pool.
Many thanks in advance for all your views and comments...must's good to get back onsite.Will catch up with you all asap.

It must have been a great day out there. Yes, it's good to see you back in action! Even in that blaring sun, you caught some good details in the foreground and even in the sky. Not sure how you did it, but it looks great. Looking forward to more and I hope things are going well for you.

i'm not usually a landscape bloke but this is gorgeous, apart from the horizon isn't quite straight though.

OK, I now can see the winning formula:
Southerndown, a stunning sunset and lots of foreground interest! Just have to get all those factors together.

Fantastic shot!
