Quite a few shot's there, some very very good one's that capture the moment superbly, it looked a powerful sea with the size of some of those waves.

Thanks Champ, It was a great couple of days, but in the end, the crowds got to me, and people would just walk and stand directly infront of you without a care. Rude buggers, This one girl just walked up and stood up on a rock right smack infront of me, I was force to take a photo of her arse, nothing else would fit in the viewfinder.

Must admit, conditions were a bit crappy actually, raining on and off, water was a bit dirty, but Yes, very very happy with the results here.

Yes, Ash, I've been meaning to get back and do some PP on these, all were just jpegs straight out of the K-5, and everything was actually a bit grey and dirty green as far as sky and water goes due to the weather conditions of the days, but I should be able to fix them up a bit.


Thanks everybodies for looking and your kind comments
