Great captures. I especially like the first one. I was a little hesitant to click on the thread, because of the title, thinking I might see some shots of a gull shiskabab.

The first two shots are very nicely taken. So surreal looking there.

I think I might have seen these images before somewhere...

Thanks Rense. Hey not really they are weather sealed ! The water at it's deepest where I was walking was waist high. Very sandy so the risk level while always there because I have been known to trip over my shadow was relativley minimal.

Thanks James - well not from me, but it is from Isla Mujeres an Island off of Cancun where I suspect there are probably 10,000 shots a day comming out of that place. Once of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to.
