The lighting on this is fantastic B-n-P just picks up on each of the patches of raised sand. Love it. Dianne

Thanks Dianne - it was great light. Made me want to photograph everything I saw ( and at 2 gb for the afternoon, I just about did!)

yup - you sure captured lovely colours. Its just amazing the difference colour can make. But where are all the playing plovers?

Thanks Cal - and lol, they blend in so well you can't really see them, even when close up, but also, the adults are so small, they'd easily fit into the palm of your hand. Interestingly, the fencing is electrified to keep people out - powered by a solar panel!
