Taken a few weeks back when we had a little mini heat wave and everybody headed to the beach. All with the Pentax K1 and either DFA 24-70mm, DA* 60-250mm or Irix 15mm.

A commentary on a seaside day - has all the elements that make up a sunny day out at the beach, some nice individual images but as the set they really work well

A set of cracking shots Gareth. I particularly like 19 with an almost abstract feel.

A great set Gareth, looks like a spot with loads of potential you can mix with a family day out. Does that water slide hit water - if so did you get any shots with a nice splash? The facial expressions are great too, how about some zoomed in shots to focus on those?

Brilliant set Gareth...you've captured in exquisite detail all the elements that combine to make a typical British day out by the sea. (Similar comment to LennyBloke I know).

Those packed beaches are very reminiscent of shots taken decades ago before we discovered cheap overseas destinations.

My favourite shots are of the funfair as people can't pose or hide their facial expressions when on a roller coaster / watersplash. You could set up a temporary business arrangement with the ride owners allowing you to distribute your contact details to people you've taken on those rides...then flog them some jpegs!

Like the very colourful beachhut shots as well.

great job.

regards

Karlo

Lovely set Gareth, I wouldn't expect anything less. Particularly like the young girl reclining in the pavilion and the expressions of the people on the water ride.

An fine and eclectic collection of shots Gareth. Particularly like the hand sticking out in 18, and the lines and curves of 19. A fun day for you I'm sure, a pleasant look-see for us!

Thanks everyone!
It's supposed to be an alcohol free zone but that doesn't happen and it can be a little 'crazy' there so not sure I fancy trying to flog images in that situation!

It does but you can't get an angle on it. This screen is up and you can't get in front of it:

So from behind all you get is this:
