Those turned out beautifully! The first and third pictures are my favorites. I think the first one looks eerie.

Looks like Bedrock to me! ;)

I was up at the crack of dawn (actually, about an hour or so before it) so I could get down to the beach and try to catch the sunrise and high tide. Unfortunately, the sunrise was quite bland but I did manage to get these shots;

I did play around with this one a bit.

A black and white effort.

This morning was a bit of a comedy of errors since I had planned to go straight to the Wetlands Trust in Arundel after this photo shoot. Unfortunately, I noticed the lens cap had come off my big lens and couldn't find it in my camera bag. The lens costs a lot of money so I didn't want to needlessly risk a scratch on the glass so I went home, instead, to look for it there. It was nowhere to be seen but as I took the lens out of the bag to keep it safe, I found the cap in another compartment! (I have no idea how it got there.) This meant that I had wasted an hour or so but I finally got to Arundel at about half past ten, just in time for the kids to start arriving. :roll: I didn't get to take many pics, mainly due to said kids running about, screaming, and scaring off some very nice wildlife (Nuthatch, Water Vole, etc.). I Surrendered and packed it in just after midday. I did manage to capture these two Moorhen having a real scrap which went on for a good ten minutes and involved a lot of running and chasing. :D

The bison are lovely aren't they. Would like to see one with my own eyes one day.

I wonder what the Moorhens were having a fight about? That last pic looks fair dinkum. The middle pic of the pier is beautiful.
