Some great pics there Ghost and there is nothing wrong with shooting a landscape in portrait, especially when it works.
Here is a couple more pics from my recent evenings on the seafront;
There is a rather small fun fair on the prom here. Rather than being spread out, it is spread out in a longish line and not very good for photography since it doesn't leave much room for pedestrians to walk past on the narrow strip.
This was taken with a neutral density filter and about a ten second(?) exposure.
I gave up on the fair and moved out onto the beach.
These were taken on the following evening further down the front and away from the pier (the same night as we met the fire dancers).
Due to tricky light conditions, I took this with about seven photos with different exposures and blended them together as an hdr photo.
I used a long exposure (about fifteen seconds) on this one in an attempt to capture the movement of the clouds.
Another long exposure photo with a very fast incoming tide. thirty seconds is a long time with the sea up to your ankles and rapidly rising while discovering that your boots aren't waterproof.
And finally, the fire dancers, whose children were also quite accomplished (and closely supervised, btw, although I would love to have seen the Elf and Safety's faces if they were to see it).
