near enough, Nigel.

That's a hell of a nest of dinosaur eggs you found.

A bit different to the normal run of sunsets. I like the POV - I feel like I am lying on those very large pebbles!

I like the POV, too, Nigel, and the wide angle. That is one rocky beach...a paradise for all the sand crabs. smile

I like the low viewpoint in this very much; it certainly makes the most of the rocks. Good colours, too.
I really like your unusual take on a sunset Nigel.

This is far better than a sunset.
Nice tones in this Nigel. Great shot.

Beautiful landscape, love those rocks.
Excellent stuff
Wonderful : A likey !!
Nigel Clack: Glad you Likey!!smile
Fantastic shot Nigel, love the angle.
I love such ultra wide angle views. Just a pity that the foreground is a bit too dark. The sky is very well exposed.

Nikon has finally 10-24mm lens smile Probably I should get it.
Nigel Clack: Yes get it!!
nice landscape shot, great composition and colors
